Bridging Year/BTEC Level 2 Engineering at Casterton College Rutland

Course description

What is 'engineering'? Is it using materials and processes to manufacture a single item? Is it applying new technologies to the mass production of well-known products? Or is it implementing methods to reduce waste and improve the sustainability of energy sources? Engineering is all of these things and many more. It affects all aspects of our lives, from the daily use of time-saving appliances to performance mateirals applied in ways we may never have imagined. The Edexcel BTEC Level 2 in Engineering also provides the starting point of a route to employment at a junior level in a range of engineering posts. They can expect to work in a range of settings. Learners can also choose to spend further periods of time studying in order to equip themselves with higher levels of knowledge and understanding. We have close links with local engineering companies who will play a significant part in the delivery of this course.Engineering is a highly valued career and there is a shortage of good quality engineers in this country so there are many opportunities for successful students.
