  • Engineering and environmental health and safety – mandatory unit
  • Mechanical engineering principles – optional unit
  • Engineering organisational efficiency and mprovement – optional unit
  • Further engineering mathematics – optional unit
  • Further electrical and electronic principles – optional unit
  • Further engineering science – optional unit

Where will it take me?

Successful completion of this course can lead to study at a higher level, specialising in a particular aspect of Engineering, or other Automotive and Engineering programmes. The course develops a wide range of transferable skills, such as problem-solving, team working, understanding technical information, critical thinking and gaining the necessary workshop skills that the sector requires. Students will develop the confidence, knowledge and skills needed if they choose to go directly into employment in the engineering or technology industry or if they wish to seek a vocational apprenticeship or trainee role. Former students have gone on to jobs such as a maintenance engineer, mechanical engineer, welder and/or fabricator, and electrical and/or electronic engineer.

Did you know?
Engineering and manufacturing is one of the UK's broadest sectors and, according to Engineering UK, workers within the sector accounted for 19% of all UK employees in 2019. While some engineering- related industries, such as mining and quarrying, are in decline, a range of other fields are actively seeking new recruits in aerospace, automotive, design, manufacturing, power, marine, instrumentation and control telecoms, digital communications and networks, software, rail, process control,  production, project management and transportation.

Course Assessment Method

There will be both written and practical assessments to complete, including online multiple-choice exams as well as practical and theory tasks.
