Our Level 1 / 2 Engineering specification provides learners with a more practical alternative to GCSE study.

The qualification introduces students to the various strands available within the engineering field, providing learners with the opportunity to develop knowledge, skills and understanding through tasks set in realistic work-related contexts.

Engineering Level 1 / 2 Award (IVQ) is split into units and the assessment is both internally and externally.

The Award consists of three mandatory units. Internally assessed work must be completed within a centre and adopt the principles of controlled assessment.

Unit 2 (9792): Producing Engineering Products 60 GLH Internally assessed and externally moderated
