Starting with the basics of electronic, mechanical and manufacturing engineering you will learn about all the theory and practical aspects of this exciting industry. This programme will also set you up with all the necessary literacy, numeracy and IT skills to ensure you successfully pass and can progress onto a level 2 engineering course. If you are aged 16-18, you will be enrolled onto a study programme, which will include retaking GCSEs or undertaking Functional Skills in English and maths if you haven't already achieved a grade 4 or above. You will also be required to complete a work experience placement and an employability programme.


Your studies will be divided between the practical application of skills and learning the basic theories for each area of engineering. A large part of your time will be dedicated to practical workshop sessions where you will develop skills in team-work, problem-solving, independent working and timekeeping skills. Topics covered include: 1. Manufacturing an engineered product using both hand tools and machining processes 2. Constructing electronic circuits 3. Computer-aided design.

How will it be delivered?

You will be assessed through your practical ability in mechanical and electronics workshops, written tests, assignments and examinations for Functional Skills.

Entry requirements

We require one satisfactory reference and GCSE English and maths at grade 2 or above. It is also desirable that you can demonstrate 90% attendance in your last place of study or work.

Your next steps...

On successful completion of your level 1 Diploma, you will be able to specialise further in one of our level 2 programmes, such as Automotive Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering or Electrical/Electronic Engineering. Alternatively, you may seek an apprenticeship with local businesses or apply for apprenticeships via the college website. This course offers the first step in preparing learners for entry into careers such as technicians or junior engineers in a wide variety of roles within different sectors of the engineering industry.
