What's Involved

This Level 2 manufacturing course will enable successful students to either progress onto a Level 3 engineering course or gain an apprenticeship in areas such as maintenance engineering, lifts, aircraft engineering and manufacturing. It will develop skills and competencies and build knowledge on what is required to work in the engineering industry.

You can expect to:

  • Learn how to work in the workshop in a safe manner while gaining an understanding of health and safety regulations
  • Read and understand engineering drawings which will enable you to manufacture engineered parts
  • Gain an understanding as to why it is important to work efficiently and effectively in an engineering environment
  • Produce products using hand fitting skills
  • Produce products while using the lathe
  • Produce components while using the Milling machine

You will need to provide your own overalls and safety boots to BSE standard to study this course. One pair of safety glasses will be provided free of charge, however, you will need to purchase an additional pair if you lose or forget your glasses.

Entry Requirements

You'll require GCSE English and Maths at Grade 4 (C) or above, but we will consider learners with Grade 3 (D) if you have experience from Level 1 Performing Engineering Operations.

Where will it take me?

Successful completion of this course can lead to progression onto the Performing Engineering Operations at Level 3, and also 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 mechanical engineering industry or if they choose the route of a vocational apprenticeship or trainee role.

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

You will be assessed using a range of methods, such as demonstration of competent practical skills and completion of logbooks. Your underpinning knowledge of the relevant subject areas will be assessed using standard questions and written answers.
