How will I be assessed?
During the first five weeks initial assessments will take place to make sure both the student and the level of work are suitably matched. There will be written assignments and on-line exams for each of the units. Further assessment of the course is by completion of a number of major practical assignments in the College’s Electrical Workshops as you progress and these are carried out under exam conditions.
Students can continue to attend full-time for another year to complete the Level 3 Diploma in Electrical Installations (Buildings and Structures)
Work within the industry and return to college to complete your training through day-release courses on an Advanced Apprenticeship.
You may also progress to BTEC Engineering courses at Level 3.
