EAL Diploma in Engineering Technologies (L2)

Course Overview: 

Students will either follow this programme as part of their apprenticeship framework, or as a fee paying part time student.

The course, which is broadly equivalent to four GCSEs, has been designed with a wide range of units so that learners can focus on their chosen career or area of interest. The qualification structure is designed to give learners the opportunity to develop a range of skills and techniques, personal skills and attributes essential for successful performance in life.

Course Delivery: 

As from 14 October 2016, learners who have achieved a qualification recognised as an alternative to Essential Skills, as detailed under the apprenticeship framework, are not required to undertake Essential Skills qualification. However, if a learner’s WEST assessment identifies that the learner has essential skills deficits which would inhibit progress through the framework, this needs to be addressed.

While following a one year EAL programme, students will study a wide range of units, which affords them the opportunity to explore a range of engineering disciplines; this in turn enhances their career opportunities.

Progression Opportunities: 

Learners gaining the Level 2 qualification will have access to a wide range of career and further education opportunities, including progression onto the EAL Level 3 Extended Technical Diploma.

The skills and knowledge the learner would have gained are in great demand and are recognised and highly valued by employers and colleges.

Additional Information:

• Safety footwear
• Flame retardant overalls
