STEM - S4 - NAT 4 Engineering Course

Dalziel High School and Amec Foster Wheeler were involved in many discussions in May 2014 to establish the possibility of introducing a formal qualification in engineering.

Discussion with the council and New College Lanarkshire Dalziel High School managed to agree to condense a 2 year Nat 4 Engineering Qualification (SQA credited) be delivered in 1 year at New College Lanarkshire.

This was agreed to be done during the Dalziel High School work experience afternoon on Wednesdays 1pm -5pm at the college.

As a pilot scheme the number of pupils for the course was 16.

Amec Foster Wheeler fully support this course and are planning activities in Aberdeen for the pupils and also visit on a regular basis. In addition they supplied all of the PPE equipment.

This pilot was so successful that this Nat 4 Engineering course is now part of our curriculum.
