Engineering (Intermediate) - Level 2


This course is your gateway to the exciting world of engineering.

Imagine being able to operate a centre lathe, creating intricate components with your own two hands. Not only that, but you'll also learn how to build and test electronic circuits. And that's not all - you'll also become a pro at Computer Aided Drawing (CAD) by creating 3D models and technical drawings.

Plus, you'll expand your knowledge with skills like hand fitting techniques, robotics, and math and science.

By the end of this course, you'll be fully equipped with the skills, knowledge, and behaviours needed to succeed in an apprenticeship or T Level pathway in engineering.
