Course Overview

Not everyone will leave school ready or confident enough to undertake a Level 3 T Level or Extended Diploma, and some may need time to develop their English and maths, communication and problem- solving skills.

This course is an exciting introduction to engineering where you will experience
a wide range of engineering subjects. This course would be suitable if you are interested in a career in product design, manufacturing and assembly, electronics, maintenance, welding and fabrication.
This is a one-year practical, work-related course. You learn by completing projects and assignments that are based on realistic workplace situations, activities and demands.

Topics may include:

  • Engineering drawing and design
  • Electronics
  • Mathematics
  • The engineering world and products
  • Fabrication and welding
  • Engineering machining.

Assessment Methods

You will study a combination of practical and theory subjects, with half of your time spent in our specialist engineering workshops. Your progress is assessed through a range of assignments and assessments. These are set and marked internally by College staff and then validated by an external moderator. You will also be expected to complete work experience in a relevant industry placement.

Progression Options

On successful completion of this course, you could start an exciting career as an apprentice with one of the many employers we work with. Alternatively, you could continue to study engineering on one of our Level 3 Extended Diplomas or an Engineering T Level.


The facilities are amazing, and working on and with industry-level software and equipment has been the perfect preparation for a Degree Apprenticeship and career in the engineering industry.
