These pioneering new qualifications offer a great alternative to the current vocational qualifications and enable learners aged 16+ to progress into employment, an apprenticeship or further study at university. We developed them with leading employers, colleges and professional bodies, who fully endorse their credibility. This is what makes our Tech-levels in Engineering unique. Working with employers on their design means they teach learners the transferable skills that employers and higher education providers say are critical to successful progression. Learners gain the core technical knowledge required to work in today’s engineering industry and cover topics such as: the scientific principles used to identify the most suitable materials in a given engineering context mechanical engineering systems and components the process of engineering design. Transferable skills are valued by employers and higher education alike. The following transferable skills have been contextualised into the content of this qualification: communication (oral and written) teamwork problem-solving. The Foundation Tech-level in Engineering requires 360 guided learning hours (GLH). This is the equivalent of one A-level. The Tech-levels in Design, Mechatronic and Power Network Engineering require 720 guided learning hours (GLH). This is the equivalent of two A-levels. What next? The course is ideal for students who are interested in studying an engineering discipline at degree level at university however always check entry requirements as many engineering degree programmes will require A Level Maths and Physics. It is also an ideal course to lead onto a Foundation Degree in Engineering, or even a Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship in Engineering. This course will also prepare young people who are keen to look for employment in an engineering/manufacturing related industry rather than university.
