Print Page

Learn about mechanics, electronics and electrical engineering so you can pursue a career in engineering.

It’s an advanced-level course which gives you broad knowledge so you can then specialise and progress to a technical area of your choice.

Our career pathways show you a typical route through the various stages of learning, what you will learn along the way and the careers these programmes could lead onto.

What I'll learn

You will also improve the wider skills vital for success in further study or employment, including self-confidence, speaking in front of others, working with others, taking responsibility and managing your time. By the end of the course you will have gained a valuable insight into future careers open to you.

 

How I'll learn

You will study 18 modules over the two years and in addition, you will study functional skills in English, maths or ICT.

Learning activities include lectures, workshops and practical sessions. A strong emphasis is placed on working and learning with others. You are regularly set tasks to complete in partnership with other students. You also need to be able to work independently and take responsibility for your own learning.

 

How I'll be assessed

Individual learning targets are set each term and you receive regular feedback on your progress in meeting these targets.

Formal assessment is through assignments, projects, presentations and practical assessments, which are set at regular intervals throughout the course. The functional skills in English, maths or ICT are assessed by an external exam.
