BTEC Engineering

Course Overview

The Whitehaven Academy is delighted that this opportunity will be delivered in partnership with GEN2 to develop and deliver a range of high quality education and training programmes in engineering and manufacturing.

Research by Engineering UK shows that over the next decade the UK will need approximately 87,000 engineers per year to meet demand, and that these people will need at least Level 4 skills (i.e. HNC and above). In addition a further 1 million skilled and semi-skilled operatives/technicians will be required.

Students following a BTEC Engineering Pathway will gain a broad understanding and knowledge of the engineering sector as well as:

  • A more focused understanding of engineering through the selection of optional specialist units
  • The opportunity to develop a range of personal skills and techniques

The BTEC in Engineering provides an engaging, robust, broad-based introduction to engineering. It provides underpinning knowledge, understanding and practical skills that reflect the needs of employers.

Potential Pathways (Post-16)

Engineering offers clear progression into a range of Post-16 subjects including Engineering Design (to be offered as part our partnership with GEN2), Maths, English and Science subjects, Apprenticeships, Further and Higher Education.

Potential Career Routes

BTEC Engineering offers a route into a wide range of careers in Engineering disciplines, including: Design, Manufacturing, Control, Electrical, and Maintenance.
