What will I be studying?
This course is designed for students who are interested in engineering and would like to acquire knowledge and understanding about the engineering sector. The course is taught through three core units of work and one additional unit chosen by the school. Each core unit is externally assessed by a short on-screen examination worth 50% and the remaining 50% is examined through an internal synoptic assessment. The core elements of environment awareness, engineering techniques and engineering principles are taught through a mixture of practical and written assignments in order to build students’ understanding and support the online examinations. These assignments focus on understanding working drawings and using tools and equipment through metal work and electronic based practicals. Computer aided design and computer aided manufacture will also be a key feature of the work.
What can I do after wards?
Level 3 qualifications in engineering, electrical installation, and plumbing. There are also clear links with apprenticeships in many areas including aerospace, marine, mechanical, maintenance, fabrication, electrical engineering sectors.
If you're a former Graham School student or family member of a current student and work in any field of science we want to hear from you! We want to share examples of local people with our students. We would ask for a photo of you and a brief description of your role in science.
