  • Tool, equipment and materials

You'll then develop specialist knowledge and insight into electrotechnical engineering through class based teaching and your industry placement.

This course is assessed through a blend of examinations and a project-based assessment on a real industry employer brief.

  • 5 GCSEs at grade 4 - 9 (C) or above including Maths, English and Science.
  • Successful interview and initial assessment, including diagnostic tests and a good school reference
  • You will need to demonstrate commitment and enthusiasm for this subject area
  • During the enrolment process all applicants will be invited to meet a tutor and ask any questions they may have about the course.
