The programme provides students with the basic building blocks of engineering, acting as an introduction to other engineering programmes. Over the year, students will complete units in Health and Safety, Computer Aided Design, Using Lathes for Turning Operations, Hand Fitting skills, Employability and Work Skills. The programme is designed for learners to be practically competent in the engineering industry.
You will learn through a mixture of theory and practical sessions. Visits and trips will be used to allow students to visualise certain elements of the programme. You will be assessed through written underpinning knowledge, written exams, online exams and practical assessments which assemble to produce a functional product.
The practical course is recommended for those that wish to develop a career in maintenance and manufacturing engineering. The programme is also designed to supplement the Level 3 for those students whose Maths grade is only achieved at GCSE Foundation level.
The progression route for this programme is to a City and Guilds or BTEC Level 3 in Engineering, an Apprenticeship or employment in the industry.
A career in Engineering could take you to a vast range of industries, including aerospace, automotive, food and drink, marine, medical, IT, construction, nuclear, or even space. There are opportunities to work as a mechanical, electrical or chemical engineer in most industries, where you could focus on the research and design elements or take a more hands-on approach with manufacturing and maintenance.
