Engineering, BTEC Level 3 Certificate/Subsidiary Diploma
1-2 years

Each Subsidiary Diploma is equivalent to one A Level. You will take a qualification in year one which is the equivalent of half an A Level. In year two you will take a qualification which is the equivalent of a full A Level. You would normally take other A Levels or BTECs alongside.

You will need at least 4 GCSEs at A*-C (grade 9-4). You will normally need at least a grade C/4 in English Language and Maths. Non- GCSE qualifications like BTEC Level 2 in a related area can count towards this total.

You will learn about mechanical and electrical engineering principles and applications and how to solve real life engineering problems. The course involves practical work on electrical circuits, forces and materials testing.

 

You will learn about mechanical and electrical engineering principles and applications and how to solve real life engineering problems. The course involves practical work on electrical circuits, forces and materials testing.

You will visit engineering companies as part of the course. This will give you a broad understanding of how engineering companies operate and the wide variety of engineering disciplines.

These are some of the areas you will study:

• Mechanical principles and applications

• Electrical and electronic principles

• Health and safety in the engineering workplace

• Mathematics for engineering technicians

• Business operations and engineering

• Properties and applications of engineering materials

 

You will need at least 4 GCSEs at A*-C (grade 9-4). You will normally need at least a grade C/4 in English Language and Maths. Non-GCSE qualifications like BTEC Level 2 in a related area can count towards this total, but we will also look at your overall academic profile.

You will need a minimum of C in Core and Additional Science (or equivalent) and C/4 in Mathematics.

 

You will be assessed through assignments to include reports, presentations and experimental demonstrations.
