- Essential mathematics for engineering and manufacturing – a knowledge and understanding of mathematics including standard matrices and determinants and standard trigonometry

- Materials and their properties – understanding material processing techniques and their effects on materials and material quality, the condition of materials, how these are managed, and materials testing methods and techniques

- Business, commercial and financial awareness - basic commercial principles including commercial priorities and markets, customers/clients/partners and resource allocation

After studying this T Level, you could progress into careers such as

  • Engineering Technician
  • Construction Craftwork
  • Materials Technology
  • Blacksmith
  • Aerospace Technology
  • Electrical Engineering

Entry Requirements - Engineering - Level 3

This programme of study is designed to accelerate progression toward advanced employment, higher study or apprenticeship opportunities if you are clear about your next steps and you have the explicit entry criteria to ensure your success.

Achievement at level 3 will have a positive impact upon your future earning potential and career options but it also unlocks progression to Higher Education and Higher and Degree Apprenticeships.  These take you from advanced technician or skilled supervisory roles at Level 3 to management and chartered professional status as you continue your studies to higher levels.

For a Level 3, including all T Level and A Level programmes of study, we require students to have the equivalent of 4 grade 4s including English at 4 and maths at 5 (or pass at level 2 where you will have developed a context of maths in the same/related subject).

In addition to the general entry criteria for T Levels and A Levels many individual subjects will also require students to have specific GCSE grades in specific subjects, and some will have a specified level of skill requirement as well as specific GCSE grade requirements. Please see the individual information regarding the requirements for each subject course.
