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.

Engineering Apprentice at Ricoh

I studied Product Design at A Level and really enjoyed it. Taking on an Engineering Apprenticeship seemed like the natural progression from that, and I’ve appreciated every minute of it. It is great working for Ricoh and being able to study at SCG, as I get so many opportunities, such as taking part in WorldSkills.

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.

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 2 Fabrication and Welding
Previous school: Charlton School

I’m a practical person, so I wanted to do something with my hands.  I didn’t have any experience before, but the teachers were really good at guiding me through.  I’m a bit of a perfectionist, so the fact that the staff let me work to my own pace really helped.  I have now secured an Apprenticeship with Caterpillar in Shrewsbury, and I can see myself being there for some time.  I’m sure it wouldn’t have happened unless I’d been on this course as at my interview they seemed really impressed with what I was doing.
