This course is ideal for those wanting to study Welding who don’t quite have the entry requirements.

This course allows you to develop and practice the skills you will need to progress within Welding and allows you to continue to develop your maths and English knowledge alongside your qualification.

Your study programme will be made up of practical sessions in the workshop to develop practical skills, classroom based theory sessions which are designed to give you a solid basic understanding of the knowledge you will need when you progress. You will continue to study English and maths and work on the skills you need to gain employment.

You will also become involved in project work which will allow you to show off the skills and knowledge you have gained and demonstrate you are ready to progress to the next level of Welding at East Coast College.


There are no formal English and maths requirements to join this study programme. You will need to undertake an interview with the course lecturers who will be looking for you to demonstrate a commitment to learn and progress.


You will be assessed in a number of ways including questions, practical activities, written self-study tasks, and maths and English exams.


There may be the opportunity for you to progress to Level 1 Welding during the year if you demonstrate commitment to learning and develop the practical skills you need. If you don’t progress during the year then you will have the opportunity to progress on to Level 1 in the next academic year.
