Level 2 Diploma in Performing Engineering Operations
Duration: 35 Weeks
Start Date: September 2023
End Date: June 2024
Type: Full Time
Tutor: Chris Goodall
The course is designed to give you a broad-based understanding of the practical sides of engineering.
If you are a person who is more practically inclined and do not like spending hours in the classroom this course is for you. However, alongside this course you will study some under pinning theory to develop your understanding of the engineering environment, principles and techniques.
This course can lead you onto an apprenticeship in engineering where you will continue to study both practical and theoretical engineering. Successful completion of this course will provide you with a National Vocational Qualification (Level 2) in Engineering.
Learners follow and must complete the three Mandatory units, plus three more of the Optional units. Alongside this course you will be expected to develop your numeracy and literacy skills.
Students will learn;
- Working safely in an Engineering Environment
- Carrying out engineering activities efficiently and effectively
- Using and Communicating Technical information
- Hand fitting techniques
- Producing sheet metal components and assemblies
- Producing mechanical engineering drawings using CAD
Level 2 Diploma in Performing Engineering OperationsExtra Studies:
Most sessions take place in our purpose-built industry standard engineering workshops. These are supported by Classroom theory sessions, assignments and on-line learning. In all units’ practical projects are undertaken where you learn to plan and carry out engineering jobs to industry standard
You will be assessed using a range of methods i.e., demonstration of competent practical skills and completion of various logbooks. Your underpinning knowledge of the relevant subject areas will be assessed using written questions
- 4 GCSEs at Grade 3 (D), including Maths and English,
