The Engineering sector continues to suffer from a skills gap and needs to keep up with the rapidly developing technologies. The BTEC Firsts in Engineering have been designed to give new entrants to the Engineering sector the underpinning knowledge and specific skills needed to meet the needs of modern engineering industries. This course offers a specialist qualification that focuses on particular aspects within the appropriate vocational sector. The L2 certificate is a qualification that can extend a learner’s programme of study and provide vocational emphasis. It is broadly equivalent to one GCSE. The L2 extended certificate extends the work-related focus from the L2 certificate and covers the key knowledge and practical skills required in the appropriate vocational sector. It offers an engaging programme for those who are clear about the area of employment they wish to enter. It is broadly equivalent to two GCSEs.
