COURSE OVERVIEW

The Engineering T-Level course is for students who wish to progress into skilled Engineering sector employment or higher-level technical training or study.
The main area of study covers:
Maintenance, Installation and Repair for Engineering & Manufacturing (Mechanical Occupational Specialism)
Included alongside the technical qualification is the completion of an employer set project and a weekly industry placement within the Engineering industry. This T-Level has been developed in collaboration with employers so the content meets the needs of industry, preparing students for the workplace.

This new qualification provides the essential knowledge, understanding and skills relevant to an engineering occupation. It has been designed to deliver a high level of knowledge about the engineering industry as well as the occupational skills required to enter the industry (known as ‘threshold competence’;). A learner who completes this qualification is well placed to develop to full occupational competence with the correct support and training.
The qualification will help you gain an understanding of the engineering industry and the sector and you will cover topics such as:
• Maintenance, installation and repair requirements
• Fault detection and diagnosis
• Isolation and resolution methods
• Communication for maintenance, installation and repair activities
A learner will study a standalone Occupational Specialism in mechanical engineering preparing them for this highly in-demand profession.
Centres and providers work with local employers who will contribute to the knowledge and delivery of training. Employers will provide demonstrations and talks on the industry and where possible work placements will also be provided by the employers.
