In year one the qualification will help you gain an understanding of the engineering industry and you will cover topics such as:

  • Working within the engineering and manufacturing sectors, past, present and future.
  • Health and safety.
  • Mathematics and science for engineering and manufacturing.
  • Materials and their properties.
  • Mechanical, electrical and electronic principles and Mechatronics.
  • Business, commercial and financial awareness and professional responsibilities, attitudes, and behaviours.

In year two, learners will specialise in light and electric vehicle systems and undertake key procedures for maintenance and repair. Learners will have the opportunity to plan, perform and evaluate their work whilst utilising a range of materials, tools and equipment. Students will develop:

  • Knowledge of electrical systems and components, power sources, power units, and engine types
  • Knowledge and application of component classification, numbering and referencing systems
  • Knowledge of how components are removed, replaced, and repaired as part of vehicle maintenance activities
  • Skills to plan and prepare vehicle maintenance activities using evaluation
  • Skills to select and use tools, equipment, and technology safely and effectively to complete vehicle maintenance, servicing, and repair activities

Working towards five or more GCSEs at grade 5 or above in subjects;, including maths and English.

You will be assessed through a combination of core exams (year 1), externally assessed coursework (year 2), work based observations (throughout the 2 years) and an employer project set project at the end of year 1.
