Engineering BTEC National Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma at University Church of England Academy

Course description

Course description
The BTEC Subsidiary Diploma in Engineering
is designed to meet the needs of multi-role
engineering technicians and equip individuals
with the skills, knowledge and understanding
required for success in a range of engineering
occupations. The qualification also enables
progression to BTEC Higher Nationals or
undergraduate degree qualifications and
professional occupations in Engineering. The
points for completing the course are equivalent
to one ‘A’ level.
Course content
The course requires the completion of 360
Guided Learning Hours (six units) over two
years. These consist of two mandatory units
and four optional units.
All the units are assessed individually; the
final grade will be an aggregate of the grade in
each of the units. Students will be expected to
complete a number of unit based assignments
that will result in a portfolio of evidence
which will be both internally assessed and
externally moderated. There will be oppor-
tunities for higher ability students to extend
the amount of units they complete over the
two years and this could result in a BTEC
Diploma (equivalent to two ‘A’ levels).

Entry requirements

Ideally students opting for this course should have five GCSE passes at grade C or above and at least one of those should be Mathematics or Science (experience of Design Technology subjects would also be an advantage).
