ECITB Scholarship - Mechanical

This one year course will be delivered at our Falkirk Campus, five days per week from August 2024 to June 2025.

The Engineering Construction Training Board (ECITB) has developed a new scholarship course in Mechanical Engineering. It will include Industry talks, employer visits and work placements. Candidates will be supported throughout by both ECITB and Forth Valley College (FVC) staff to enhance their opportunities to progress onto employment in the engineering industry. There will be a weekly training allowance to support candidates on this programme.

  • NC Engineering Systems
  • PEO2 Mechanical Engineering
  • Supporting Net Zero
  • Behavioural Based Safety
  • ECITB Digital Passport
  • ECITB Pre-employment Programme (includes the CCNSG Safety Passport)

Completing this qualification can lead to a range of career options. Those who wish to stay in engineering construction can develop their skills further, through additional qualifications and apprenticeships in their selected craft discipline at Level 3.

This course will prepare candidates for entry into a Modern Apprenticeship in Fabrication & Welding/Mechanical Qualification or as a direct hire employee in the engineering industry.

Applicants must have National 5's in English, Maths (desirable) and Science or Technical subject (desirable).

The ECITB is committed to diversity and inclusion and welcomes applications from all sections of the community, particularly those that are currently underrepresented in the engineering construction industry.
