Ardleigh Green Campus is open – only for those students that have been identified as needing to attend. All other Havering Campuses remain closed.
The Performing Engineering Operations Level 1 course is a basic introduction
to engineering manufacturing and will suit you if you are just starting out in
your engineering career and require a broad range of competencies to enable safe
progression into the workplace. Successful students who gain the Level 1
qualification can progress to study further Level 2 Engineering courses.
You can expect to:
Learn how to work in theworkshop 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
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.
You'll require GCSE English and maths at Grades 3-1 (D-F) or above, as well as basic IT skills.
Where will it take me?
Successful completion of this course can lead to progression onto the
Performing Engineering Operations at Level 2, 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
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
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.
