Delivery of the course is in our sector leading state of the art digital technology workshops. Delivery will include a large practical content with students developing a portfolio of their work coupled with project and research work. There is also a work experience program that all students will be encouraged to take part in to help them develop links with potential future employers.
Assessment is via our student response system, which tracks the development of students throughout their program of study. There will also be a high emphasis on measuring improving skill sets of the students that is key in obtaining an apprenticeship with a local employer. The course is delivered over four days with the fifth dedicated to project and research work independent study.
Successful students have the opportunity to either progress to the advanced Electronic Engineering Technician course or to enter an apprenticeship.
Students will engage in a work experience week, this will require students to purchase protective footwear. There is an annual trip to the Science Museum in London that may require a small contribution of £10 per head.
