This course is an excellent introduction to technician level Engineering and includes the fundamental knowledge and skills required to progress on to further study in Engineering. The units delivered have a mechanical bias and the programme complements learners already working in the mechanical Engineering sector.
What Will I Learn?
The combination of units for this qualification is: Mechanical Principles, Mathematics, Health & Safety, Engineering Drawing, CNC Programming, and CAD.
You must show evidence that you have achieved a minimum of five A* - C grade GCSEs that must include the subjects of English, Maths and Science. Alternatively, other appropriate level 2 qualifications will be considered providing the units achieved suitably prepare you for this level 3 programme. The best way to do this is to provide the course tutor with a copy of your certificate showing the units accredited.
Assessment is via a mixture of practical assignments, written assignments and in-class tests. All units are assessed and graded and an overall grade for the qualification is awarded.
