Engineering

BTEC Level 2 First Award in Engineering

If you are interested in the way products are produced and the science behind the choice of materials for a product this could be the course for you.

This qualification is taught over 120 guided learning hours (GLH). It has two core units that must be completed:

  • The World of Engineering. This unit is assessed with an external exam.
  • Investigating an Engineering Product.

Two further units will be studied covering Health and Safety and Engineering Materials.
This course is primarily theory based with assessment mainly based on written assignments completed at the end of each unit of study, practical activities are used to enhance learning where appropriate.

What other learning could you do:
You could take this course to prepare for an NVQ Level 1 or 2 in a related subject and depending on your other qualifications, you could progress onto courses leading to the BTEC Engineering Level 3 or Product Design.
With further training, you could go into a job related to engineering such as an Architect or Civil Engineer.
You could also go straight into employment as an apprentice as you develop the engineering and design skills, knowledge and understanding that employers in the engineering industries are looking for.
BTEC in Engineering is an ideal qualification for those candidates who want a broad background in Engineering – either for work-based learning in this area or to go on to university. It provides a suitable basis for further study in this subject or other courses. This course compliments Science and Design subjects.
