Course Description

The Improving Operational Performance framework incorporates two pathways (Performing Engineering Operations (PEO) Level 2 and Performing Manufacturing Operations (PMO) Level 2) that equip apprentices with the basic skills and knowledge to carry out a range of engineering and manufacturing processes at semi-skilled and operator level.

The PEO2 pathway gives apprentices working in engineering a basic all-round grounding in engineering operations and techniques. The competence element is designed to be tailored to engineering operations and techniques. On completion they will be of semi-skilled status.

The PMO2 pathway focuses on training apprentices to operate effectively in a manufacturing environment.
