Additional information

Who is this course for?

This course is for anyone who wants to take their first step into the world of aircraft and engineering.

What you'll learn

This course will teach you how to plan using some of the planning methods available; how to use 2D CAD and transfer that drawing to manufacture of components; and how to build presentations and deliver them to your peers.

Course entry requirements

For entry onto this course you will need four GCSEs at grade 2 or above. If you do not have GCSE Maths and English at grade 2 or above, you will complete a functional skills course alongside the BTEC qualification.

How is the course delivered and assessed?

These qualifications consist of two unit types. Group A units are the core skills units, and cover content designed to reflect the skills and behaviours needed to progress to further study. Group B units are made up of sector units and enable students to develop sector-specific skills and knowledge to support progression to the next stage of vocational learning.

Future career and study opportunities

After completing this course, you will have developed the necessary transferable and industry-specific skills to progress to a Level 2 qualification or apprenticeship.
