The part-time study programmes at N.A.College are designed for learners aged between 17-23 years old who are starting their initial training within Nissan (or the automotive industry), before entering into their full apprenticeship.

The programmes compliment the on-the-job training and the learners develop knowledge of manufacturing and Lean practices relating to the automotive industry.

Each course is 10 weeks long, with 3 weeks in college doing ‘off-the-job training’ and 7 weeks of ‘on-the-job training’.

The learners achieve a recognised Level 2 manufacturing qualification and learn the fundamental engineering practices used within the automotive industry. They also work on hand skill development and the basics of automotive CAD design.

Personally I thought the course was great, for someone that really wanted a career at Nissan. Firstly is was great to meet new colleagues and friends, whom I've kept in touch with even thou they weren't successful, secondly an insight to Nissan itself. Working under ex Nissan supervisors was a real incentive to carry on until the end and more reason to try your best to get the right result, as they spoke professionally of the job in hand, and made it more exciting. They tell you exactly what to expect, what to look forward to and why you should choose Nissan,(for the career). The team building exercises were real fun, and had everyone working together, because that's vital in Nissan. Also working with the skills team was good to, not everyone is up to date on iPads and trusted with iPads for that matter, but helped so much on my application, presentation and preparation ready for every step along the way, and there is a few steps and hurdles to get over along the way, but if you want it that much you don't mind trying your hardest. The work experience was a real test in working relations, you need to trust the man next to you in Nissan and likewise, working under pressure and to targets is a real challenge, but if the teamwork is there then it's half the battle. Thanks for all the help from the skills team after the course was ended, they kept there eyes and ears open for any other positions arising, some that I was unfortunate in getting.
