GRAHAM SCHOOL IS PART OF

Engineering

EAL Level 1/2 Engineering Technology

Led by: Mrs E Millican

What will I be studying?

This course is designed for students who are interested in engineering and would like to acquire knowledge and understanding about the engineering sector. The course is taught through three core units of work and one additional unit chosen by the school. Each core unit is externally assessed by a short on-screen examination worth 50% and the remaining 50% is examined through an internal synoptic assessment. The core elements of environment awareness, engineering techniques and engineering principles are taught through a mixture of practical and written assignments in order to build students’ understanding and support the online examinations. These assignments focus on understanding working drawings and using tools and equipment through metal work and electronic based practicals. Computer aided design and computer aided manufacture will also be a key feature of the work.

What can I do afterwards?

Level 3 qualifications in engineering, electrical installation, and plumbing. There are also clear links with apprenticeships in many areas including aerospace, marine, mechanical, maintenance, fabrication, electrical engineering sectors.

GCSEΒ  ENGINEERING

Led by: Mrs E Millican

Exam Board:

AQA

What will I be studying?

The core content for the Engineering GCSE includes: using engineering materials and manufacturing processes, looking at systems used in engineering, testing and investigating how engineered products work, understanding the impact of modern technologies such as 3D printers and electronics, and using engineering skills to manufacture and make products. A mathematical understanding will be required for this GCSE and questions on some maths problems will be asked in the exam.

40% of the marks are awarded through the controlled assessment which is started in June of Year 10 and takes most of Year 11 to complete and 60% is a written exam which is two hours long and has multiple choice and some short answer questions. Students will also be given a problem to solve using notes and sketches to produce a solution.

What can I do afterwards?

With a GCSE in Engineering, students can show that they have the practical skills and technical understanding to progress further in subjects such as Engineering, Electronics, Product Design and apprenticeships in plumbing, electrics and motor vehicle maintenance. They can also go into areas such as computer and game console repair and generally any job requiring a practically skilled individual.
