2020 Programme - Electrical (L2)
Engineering and Manufacturing Technologies
What will you be working towards?
On this course learners can advance their understanding of the techniques and practices used within the Electrical and Building Service industries. Learners practice the installation of domestic (240V) and industrial (up to 10,000V) wiring and electrical components including circuit breakers, consumer units, lighting and power circuits, in accordance with industry standard regulations. The course focuses on developing the hands on use of tools and components to complete real installations, and develops students theoretical knowledge of the underpinning maths and science which explain how these systems work. Our Study Programme includes opportunities for you to develop your English and Maths skills as required. You may be expected to complete either functional skills or GCSE qualifications as part of your course depending on your GCSE results. This course includes the opportunity to take part in an industry placement in a sector relevant to your qualification and study programme. The placement will take place 1 or 2 days per week on the days when you are not in college studying. Industry placements are designed to give you the skills to start work at the end of your studies, progress into an apprenticeship, or to add to your UCAS statement.
