Gain the necessary skills to ensure that you are job-ready and equipped to become a skilled engineer able to gain employment, both locally and worldwide, in fields ranging from deep-sea welding to advanced robotics.
You can start your career with us by combining A Levels in Electronics and Maths in an academic programme with an engineering bias, choosing from a range of vocational courses or start an apprenticeship with an engineering company. Those wishing to enhance their careers can choose from a range of HNCs in Manufacturing, Mechanical or Electrical Engineering.
We also offer a range of part-time welding and fabrication courses and bespoke training to meet individual company needs.
In 2017 we secured nearly £500,000 from the Marches Local Enterprise Partnership via its Growth Deal with Government to develop one of three advanced manufacturing training hubs in the region. The College continues to seek further opportunities with the LEP.

Level 3 Extended Diploma in Engineering
Previous school: Church Stretton School
I came here because I'm interested in Engineering. I really enjoyed doing my final project and having the creativity to come up with my own design and I have also enjoyed working with hydraulics. I achieved D*D*D* in my Diploma and am now going on to do an Apprenticeship. The teachers are helpful and the equipment at the College is state-of-the-art.
Level 3 in Engineering
Previous school: Holy Trinity School, Telford
Level 2 was mostly practical and this year on Level 3 there is a lot of theory and it's preparing me for university. I live outside of Shrewsbury and the transport links to the College are good.
A Level Product Design (Maths, Physics)
Previous school: The Priory School
Product Design gives you a lot of options for your future. I enjoyed the project where we had to make something out of a generic Ikea stool – I created an adjustable table. After College I would like to do an Apprenticeship with JLR.
A Level Product Design (Media Studies and Music)
Previous school: Belvidere School
I took Product Design at A Level because I was inspired by my GCSE teacher. I really enjoy how hands on the subject is and using the computers to bring your designs to life. You can explore your creative side in a relaxed environment.
