An introduction to the course
Are you looking for a career in engineering, whether that be electric engineering, mechanical engineering or even a builder. Then the WJEC Engineering Level 1/2 Award is the course for you. This course provides a more practical alternative to the GCSE in Product Design. The emphasis of the course is on gaining experience in engineering drawings, producing a product from an engineering drawing and analysing existing engineered products. You should expect to spend at least 70% of your lesson time involved in practical activities.
You will produce a portfolio of evidence , this will demonstrate your ability to read and understand engineering drawings, produce CAD (Computer Aided Design) engineering drawings and traditional hand drawn engineering drawings, and your ability to produce engineered products from engineering drawings.
What the course involves
Practical sessions will include:
How the course is assessed
You will complete 2 units of work, which are internally accessed:
Unit 1: Engineering Design. This unit teaches you how to read and produce an engineering drawing.
Unit 2: Producing Engineering Products. This unit teaches you how to make an engineered product from an engineering drawing.
1 written exam, which is externally assessed.
It can be a basis for building skill related courses, construction, product design and engineering (of all kinds).
Level 3 Engineering, Electrical Engineering, all areas of construction apprenticeship to name a few.
Required resources/equipment for the course
You will be expected the purchase a Designers essentials kit provided by the school.
