Engineering: Green Futures (Maintenance, Installation and Repair)

DO NOT DELETE OR EDIT THIS ROW OR ITS CONTENTS

The UK are leading the way in green energy research and practical applications. A key focus of the course will be how sustainable engineering is used, which could lead to specialising in working with the green engineering sectors. You’ll develop a broad understanding of engineering and manufacturing sectors as a part of your core learning. This is further enhanced by exploring themes such as the use of engineering in installation and repair/retrofit situations. There’s a substantial 45 day work placement element to the course that provides valuable industry insight (and a great addition to your CV). There’s also the potential to specialise in areas such as materials technology, processing, manufacture and production.

What will I study in Engineering: Green Futures (Maintenance, Installation and Repair)?

You will study a range of core modules from typical Engineering modules such as:

  • Working within the Engineering and Manufacturing Sectors
  • Essential mathematics for engineering and manufacturing
  • Essential science for engineering and manufacturing
  • Materials and their properties
  • Mechanical principles
  • Electrical and electronic principles

to more business focused modules, such as:

  • Health and safety principles and coverage
  • Business, commercial and financial awareness
  • Professional responsibilities, attitudes, and behaviours

The full list can be found at the website below:

Employer-set project

The employer-set project ensures students have the opportunity to combine core knowledge and skills to develop a substantial piece of work in response to an employer set brief. The employer-set project forms part of the Technical Qualification and is a separate part of the T Level programme to the Industry Placement.

Occupational Specialist Content

Specialist content is structured into different occupational specialisms, which correspond to the apprenticeship standards listed on the relevant occupational map. Occupational specialisms ensure students develop the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve a level of competence needed to enter employment in the occupational specialism, and are organised around ‘performance outcomes’ that indicate what the student will be able to do, as a result of learning and applying the specified knowledge and skills.

Entry Requirements

At least 5 GCSEs at Grade 4 or above from the core subjects. A course specific entry requirement is that you have a Grade 5 in GCSE Maths and Grade 4 in English.

How will I learn?

There will be a lot of classroom based activities, with lectures, debates and workshops occurring through the two years but a key component of the T level is the work placement.  This is a substantial element of the course and equates to 45 days (315 hours) of your course.

How will I be assessed?

  • 2 Core exam papers taken in November of Year 2.
  • An 18 hour Employer Set Project, also in November of Year 2.
  • A 30 hour Occupational Specialism Assessment in May of Year 2
  • Minimum 315 hours of work placement with one or two employers

Any trips?

We will be organising a number of various trips to take advantage of the excellent situation within which Cirencester lies - at the heart of much of the best of British Engineering.

Companies such as:

  • Rolls Royce
  • Dyson
  • Machynlleth Centre for Alternative Technology
  • Renishaw

will be possible options to visit, but we will also visit a number of different sites, such as Cosford RAF Museum and the Ironbridge World Heritage Site in Shropshire.

Are there any costs involved?

There will be costs for transport to your work placement and you will have to pay a small amount for materials.  There will be costs associated for the trips but these will be kept to a minimum.

You will also have to buy your own PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) which may cost around £50.

Cirencester College offers a generous Bursary Scheme, which may be able to assist with the cost of these items. All details can be found under Financial Support.

FAQs

Do I need to be good at Maths?

There is a lot of Maths involved in Engineering so the standard is quite high - you will need to be able to access a similar standard to A level Maths.


Is there much practical work involved?

Yes, LOTS! You have 315 hours of work placement, at least, and many of your units in College will have a practical element to them as well.


What sort of progression is there from the T-level in Engineering?

A quick answer would be to say - lots of different opportunities! Anything ranging from a full apprenticeship to Higher Education Degree Courses in Engineering.

The T-level also offers you a useful route straight into employment or even self-employment.
