Metal Fabricator

Metal Fabrication is a significant sector within the engineering industry with a broad purpose of carrying out metal fabrication work, using items such as all types of structural sections, pipe, hollow sections, steel plate and sheet metal, in various thicknesses, including ferrous and non-ferrous materials.
Metal Fabricators utilise a wide range of skills, standards, and techniques, using both CNC and manual machines.


The 2024 Worldskills UK Metal Fabricator Competition is now recognized as an important part of the Metal Fabricator Apprenticeship Standard (ST0607) by the Institute for Apprenticeships & Technical Education (IfATE) and the main awarding bodies including City and Guilds, EAL, EngEPA Ltd and Skills Education Group.
All parts of the competition have been designed to be inline with the practical tasks, and questions, used at the End Point Assessment, for the Metal Fabricator Apprenticeship Standard.


The practical test projects are also mapped against the Skills, Knowledge and Behavior requirements in the Metal Fabricator Apprenticeship Standard, the competition time can also be used as part of the apprentices 20% off the job training requirements.


The changes also include the availability of drawings from past test projects etc. for competitors, colleges, or independent training providers to use as teaching materials, competition training tasks and as part of their curriculums.
