Summary

This qualification is a 1-year course and builds on the Level 2 Diploma by providing learners with more advanced knowledge and the related practical skills they will need to pursue a career in this occupational area. You will study the following mandatory content: • Electrical installation design • Environmental technology systems • Electrical science and principles • Electrical installation craft • Inspection, testing and commissioning • Diagnosing and correcting electrical faults To gain this qualification, learners must successfully achieve: • Six mandatory units and one optional unit, including the related on-screen examinations, a centre-marked assignment and a practical test for each unit • The specified synoptic assessment

What do I need to join?

You will have 4 GCSEs at grade 3 or above, which must include at least a 3 and a 4 in Maths, English and Science. Ideally, candidates will have completed a Level 2 electrical qualification.

How will I know how I am doing?

At the end of the year, your practical skills will be assessed through a synoptic end test. You will also take a multiple-choice theory exam. Targets will be set and agreed with your tutor throughout the year, and you will receive regular feedback and one-to-one progress reviews with your tutor to ensure that you are on track to achieve your goals.

Maths & English

Learners with a grade 3 in Maths and English are required to retake the qualification, and this will be taught alongside their vocational qualification. Learners with a grade 2 or below in Maths or English will study functional skills alongside their vocational qualification.

Employability

In addition to obtaining a trade qualification and practical experience, learners will also develop other skills, such as interview techniques, CV preparation and digital skills, to prepare them for the world of work. Learners will participate in trade competitions judged by local employers and participate in cross-college employability events.

Work Experience

All learners are required to complete work experience in a construction environment. This could be with local construction companies or as part of a community project. This gives learners the opportunity to develop their employability and practical skills in their chosen trade and will assist with their progression choices.

What can I do next?

After successful completion, you can progress onto a NVQ Level 3 in Electrical. Alternatively, entry to an apprenticeship can be gained if suitable employment is found.
