This is a nationally recognised award in electrical engineering. This course satisfies one key element of the Modern Apprenticeship framework for engineering. It provides an excellent and thorough grounding into the disciplines that relate to electrical engineering and introduces the concept of domestic renewable systems. If you are looking to be employed within the electrical engineering sector or move towards the renewables industry then this is an excellent qualification to support you becoming a technician or apprentice.
The course also includes Performing Engineering Operations (PEO) EAL qualification @ SVQ Level 2 and is recognised by industry as the first year of a Modern Apprenticeship in engineering.
Entry may be possible for mature students depending on prior skills and knowledge.
You will be required to attend an Information and Interview Session with the course tutor prior to being offered a place on the course.
If you are currently studying at the College, you will also require a positive Progressing Learner Reference.
Information and Interview Session Requirements
This is a key aspect of the application process. You must confirm your attendance should you be offered an Information and Interview Session.
During the Information and Interview Session, we will ensure the entry requirements and your aspirations and career plan are appropriate for the course and the level of course you have applied for. It is therefore important that you prepare well for this.
The practical skills will include a small project on renewable energy and it's integration into domestic properties as well as a practical exercise on how this connects into existing systems.
