The College of West Anglia

CWA works in partnership with Anglian Water to offer a level two construction and level three engineering course at the Wisbech campus, providing the skills and knowledge to make students work-ready.

The courses provide practical skills, hands-on learning and real site experience whilst learning alongside experienced employees from Anglian Water and their partner companies. Students have the opportunity to try the career, while studying, and are guaranteed a job interview with Anglian Water and their partner companies once they have completed their studies.

Engineering - Level 3

The first is a full-time level 3 engineering (electrical and mechanical) qualification, specifically designed to lead into an apprenticeship with the Anglian Water @one Alliance and I.O.S (Intergrated Operational Solutions) further qualifications including HNC, degree and chartered engineer status. For a sample flowchart of the engineering pathway, see below.

As a part of the qualification, there will be significant work experience with Anglian Water.

Construction - Level 2
