Level: 3 | Duration: 2 Years | Start date: September
What is this course about?
This Technical Qualification consists of a core section including health and safety, material science, and engineering mathematics. The subject specialism is Maintenance engineering technologies. After completing basic skills modules you will progress on to learning about advanced diagnostic techniques for multiple mechanical systems. You will work in the engineering workshops to gain the required hand and machining skills, whilst attending theory lessons conducted in a classroom. An industry-based work placement is required to run alongside your course, this must be equivalent to at least 45 days and will further reinforce your newly learned skills and offer a true insight into the engineering industry.
Entry Requirements: A minimum of 5 GCSEs at grade 9 – 5 including a grade 5 in English language and Maths.
What will this course lead on to?
The course has a considerable industry placement element totalling a minimum of 315 hours, because of this industry experience the course is designed to allow students to progress directly in the engineering industry in your chosen field. Due to the high level academic nature of the T-Level there are also opportunities to progress even further by enrolling on the HNC course or to explore University.
A major part of a T-Level is the mandatory work placement, during this you will gain an unrivalled insight into the engineering industry and complete an employer set project. You will have an opportunity to take part in a range of enrichment activities such as 5 a side football, practical projects, etc, together with educational visits to engineering companies such as Jaguar Land rover and Fiddlers Ferry Power Station.
How will I be assessed?
During your first year you will complete the T-Level Engineering common core elements, these include maths, science and engineering specific content. This will be assessed via two 2.5hr externally set exams and an employer set project. The second year will be specific to your chosen engineering specialism and will be assessed with a 24hr practical assignment that is broken down into stages.
Any additional costs?
A Course kit list will be provided, this briefly consists of Personal Protective Equipment: College polo shirts, boots, overalls and eye protection, with the option of purchasing your own welding helmet. Stationary is also required for your studies, including pens, paper and notepads.
