This practical course covers electronic and computer servicing. It is designed for careers in computer and Electronic Engineering. You will learn how a PC works and build one from components and upgrade/repair a PC. Plus you will learn core Electronic skills.
The Pearson BTEC Level 3 National Foundation Diploma in Engineering is intended to be an Applied General qualification for post-16 learners wanting to continue their education through applied learning and who aim to progress to higher education, and ultimately to employment, possibly in the engineering sector. The qualification is equivalent in size to 1.5 A levels and aims to provide a coherent introduction to study of the engineering sector. Learners need not necessarily have studied engineering previously, but will have successfully passed a level 2 programme of learning, with GCSEs in English and maths or vocational qualifications.
Engineering covers a broad variety of roles and it involves the application of scientific principles and practical knowledge to transform ideas and materials into products and systems safely and support them during their lifetime. This qualification has a focus on a broad range of engineering specialist areas. Learners taking this qualification will study mandatory content covering: engineering principles, delivery of engineering processes, product design and manufacture, commercial and quality principles. The content of this qualification has been developed in consultation with academics to ensure that it supports progression to higher education. In addition, employers and professional bodies have been involved and consulted in order to confirm that the content is appropriate and consistent with current practice for learners planning to enter employment directly in the engineering sector.
The Pearson BTEC Level 3 National Extended Diploma has primarily been designed for learners who want to pursue a career in engineering and who want to be able to collaborate across and apply knowledge, skills and understanding in other branches of engineering. They can either progress directly to an apprenticeship or to employment as an engineering technician or can choose to progress to higher education to study for an engineering degree or HNC. It is equivalent in size to three A-Levels at 1080 GLH and is intended to be a Technical Level qualification. It has also been designed to meet the Tech Bacc measure when studied alongside Level 3 mathematics and the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).
Engineering covers a broad variety of roles and it involves the application of scientific principles and practical knowledge to transform ideas and materials into products and systems safely and support them during their lifetime. This qualification has a focus on a broad range of engineering specialist areas including electrical and electronic, mechanical, and others for example manufacturing. Learners will study 7-mandatory units and 8- optional units including the following topics: engineering principles, health and safety, engineering product design, micro controller systems, commercial and quality principles, project and calculus. Through the optional units, learners will study a mix of electrical/electronic, mechanical and other engineering specialist areas. The choice and units combinations will be decided based on local and employment needs. The content of this qualification has been developed in consultation with employers and professional bodies to ensure relevance to current industry practice in engineering occupational disciplines. In addition, academics have been consulted on the content development to ensure the qualification supports progression to higher education.
This course covers the basic knowledge and understanding of the principles and methods involved in Engineering and technology.
The qualification covers one mandatory unit:
Additionally, there are four optional units:
If you want to progress into employment in the engineering industry, we can train you to a standard of practical proficiency and give you the opportunity to acquire appropriate practical engineering skills and knowledge.
The EAL Level 2 Diploma in Performing Engineering Operations is made up of 3 mandatory units and 3 optional units.
