This intermediate programme is equivalent to five GCSEs and offers a route into an academic or practical study.
We offer you a broad introduction to all of the principles of engineering so you can then specialise
in areas such as manufacturing, plant operations and repair, machining, welding and fabrication.
We offer three options for you to start your engineering studies depending on your GCSE results. Our Level 3 course offers you the choice of university study or employment on successful completion of your course. Our Level 2 and Level 1 courses are ideal should your GCSEs not be what you expected with the option to progress to Level 2 or Level 3.
