Engineering - Performing Engineering Operations Levels 1 & 2 at Redcar & Cleveland College

Course description

What successful students can go on to do:

Achieving this qualification could help you progress in a role as an Engineering Operative.

If your goal is to jump-start your engineering career by building a solid skill set and gaining plenty of practical experience, you may want to take this qualification as part of an Apprenticeship in Engineering.

If you’d like to pursue further training to get ahead in your career, a good next step would be a Level 3 in Engineering.

What’s it all about?

To earn this qualification, you need to show you have a particular set of skills. This course will be assessed in a simulated workplace. For each unit, your assessor watches and asks questions as you perform a task, or looks at a portfolio of work that you’ve built as formal evidence of your learning. Then they confirm you have the skills to do the job well.

Which level is right for me?

Level 1

You are just starting your career in engineering and require a broad range of engineering competencies to enable safe progression into the workplace. You would like to progress on to more advanced qualifications or perhaps an Engineering Apprenticeship.

Level 2

You have some knowledge and basic skills in production or maintenance engineering – probably from a role where you work under supervision. You would like to increase your skills and perhaps progress on to more advanced qualifications.

Entry requirements

Level 1

There are no formal entry requirements but you will be expected to attend an interview.

Level 2

Four GCSEs at grades D-E or above, or a Level 1 pass.
