How will I learn?

This modular scheme develops practical skills and theoretical knowledge to a level that suits the individuals needs. Compulsory units cover working effectively and safely in an engineering environment, and engineering principles and practice, as well as providing a sound basis for further study at higher education level.

Delivery of this course is through structured lectures, practical activities, assignments, student-centred learning and personal tutorials. Class-led activities include theory, practical tasks and demonstrations.

Entry Requirements

4 GCSEs (grades A*-C) including maths and science and a relevant level 2 engineering qualification. Experienced candidates with industry experience will be considered on an individual basis.

What Can I Do Next?

This programme gives skills that are valued by employers. It provides a clear route into a wide range of engineering activities as a technician or apprentice.

Course Progression

Options in higher education, including HNCs and Foundation degrees, providing a satisfactory level of maths and science is obtained by taking the additional advanced maths and science unit as part of this course, or an equivalent qualification.
