Industrial Technologies Project


March 23 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm GMT

This unit supports a learner to complete a relevant Industrial Technologies Project linked to their workplace. The unit is introduced using a remote 0.5-day tutor-led component supporting the learner in selection and definition of their project, which should be completed over 4-6 week timescale, as well as exploring how organisations benefit from collaboration with centres of innovation and deliver research and development projects. There are additional mid-point and final assessment tutor-led sessions delivering project support and assessing each of the learners project outputs.

There is a pre-requisite to have completed a prior IDT unit. This unit will allow the learner to apply the learning from the prior unit to their workplace through their project. Class sizes are limited to 10 candidates to ensure appropriate, personalised support.

About this event

This project focussed CPD unit is available to any employer and their employees who will benefit from a Level 4 course in project implementation following completion of a prior Level 4 Industrial Digitalisation unit with no cost to the employer.

The overall length of the unit including the remote tutor-led elements to support project implementation and an essential self-directed project including assessment is carried out over the course of 4-6 weeks.

This is a level 4 course.

ESP units at Level 4 have been designed to provide an understanding of emerging technologies and the deployment of these technologies in industrial/manufacturing contexts. The units have been designed to suit learners at Level 4, or those with higher level STEM qualifications seeking to upskill in emerging technologies. Those learners without a suitable STEM background at Level 3 would be advised to study the relevant Level 3 unit first.

Knowledge : Has practical, theoretical or technical knowledge and understanding of a subject or field of work to address problems that are well defined but complex and non-routine. Can analyse, interpret and evaluate relevant information and ideas. Is aware of the nature of approximate scope of the area of study or work. Has an informed awareness of different perspectives or approaches within the area of study or work.

Skills : Identify, adapt and use appropriate cognitive and practical skills to inform actions and address problems that are complex and non-routine while normally fairly well-defined. Review the effectiveness and appropriateness of methods, actions and results.

The learning outcomes for this unit include:

• Understand academic R&D activity in Catapults/Centres of innovation and of relevance to enterprise sector.

• Understand principles and tools of project management within an industrial environment.

• Use and implement connectivity, digital tools and control software to build a digital environment through an industry application project over 4 weeks.

• Practical applications of data analytics and AI for manufacturing systems and robotics through delivery of own project over 4 weeks.

Please note that these courses have been developed and are made available during the term of the Emerging Skills Project, under a Department for Education funded programme for companies and individuals resident in England .
