2 2 Pearson and Engineering Pearson are the largest provider of vocational Engineering qualifications to Schools & Colleges in the UK We offer qualifications from Level 1 to Level 6 Working with some of the largest employers in UK Deep levels of engagement with schools, FE, HE, Professional Bodies, Employers and Work Based Learning providers

3 3 Pearson’s Engineering Qualifications Progression pathways through technical / vocational education Aligned to, and endorsed by, professional bodies Integrate elements of employability and work ready skills Supports work- ready behaviour and skills Progression to new Higher Apprenticeships

4 Pearson’s Engineering Qualifications Next Generation BTEC Firsts (Level 1/2) in Engineering (NQF) BTEC Apprenticeships Level 2-4 BTEC Level 6 Diplomas in Engineering (QCF) Higher National Certificates (level 4) Diplomas (Level 5) (QCF) BTEC Nationals in Engineering (Level 3) (QCF) Specialist Engineering Level 1/2 Awards (3 x 1 GCSE size) (NQF)

5 BTEC Engineering Units Development of BTEC Unit Content has been informed by and mapped to: Relevant Engineering National Occupational Standards (NOS). Engineering Council UK-SPEC for EngTech registration Established BTEC Engineering First units (QCF) Engineering Diploma Principal Learning at Foundation and Higher level 5

6 BTEC Engineering Units Provide opportunities to develop a range of employability skills Provide opportunities to develop and practise Functional Skills Provide further opportunities to enhance and reinforce skills in English and mathematics in naturally occurring, relevant, work-related contexts Provide opportunities to develop personal, learning and thinking skills (PLTS) within an engineering context 6

7 Next Generation BTEC Firsts (Level 1/2) in Engineering (NQF) QualificationSizeEquivalent in size to Age GroupDelivered predominantly in Award1201 GCSE14-19School Certificate2402 GCSEs14-19School Extended Certificate 3603 GCSEs14-19School/FE College Diploma4804 GCSEs14-19FE College

8 Key Features of the next generation BTEC Firsts in Engineering Provides a practical, real-world approach to learning Designed to develop skills and knowledge needed in this growing industry, such as; Discovering the world of engineering and how it impacts on our world today Communication skills to articulate and discuss new ideas or work as a team to solve problems Health and safety in the workplace and the appropriate procedures and legislation How mathematics and science is essential to engineering success Encourages learners to present their work in a variety of ways, such as presentations, demonstrations and models/prototypes

9 BTEC Firsts in Engineering Award (120 GLH=1 GCSE size) Core unit: The Engineered World (External assessment) 30 GLH Core unit: Investigating an Engineered product (Internal assessment) 30 GLH Optional Specialist units (Internal assessment) 60 GLH Certificate (240 GLH=2 GCSEs size) 30 GLH 30 GLH 30 GLH 120 GLH Extended Certificate (360 GLH=3 GCSEs size) 30 GLH Mandatory unit: Interpreting and Using Engineering Information (External assessment) 30 GLH Specialist Optional units (Internal assessment) 240 GLH Core unit: The Engineered World (External assessment) Core unit: Investigating an Engineered product (Internal assessment) Core unit: Investigating an Engineered product (Internal assessment) Core unit: The Engineered World (External assessment) Mandatory unit: Mathematics for Engineering (Internal assessment) 30 GLH Mandatory unit: Interpreting and Using Engineering Information (External assessment) Mandatory unit: Mathematics for Engineering (Internal assessment) 30 GLH Specialist Optional units (Internal assessment)

10 The Diploma – 480 GLH (4 GCSE size) Allows learners to follow pathways of specific learning within the sector - Technology, Maintenance, Manufacturing, Mechanical Designed to inspire and enthuse learners to consider a career in engineeringDeveloped with FE colleges in mind and includes: A larger core to improve progression, in particular to BTEC Nationals in Engineering A new mandatory unit, Unit 21: Introduction to Communications for Engineering, gives learners the opportunity to use and develop their communication skills to present information in engineering contexts Formed of 2 extra mandatory units and 240 GLH of optional specialist units

11 New BTEC Firsts Qualifications We have developed 3 x 1 GCSE sized endorsed pathways as satisfying the Principal Learning criteria Set alongside next generation BTEC Firsts, these new qualifications ensure a rich and varied Engineering offer for learners at Key Stage 4 Developed with the Royal Academy of Engineering Endorsed ‘fixed structure’ pathways.

12 Successor PLQ Qualifications 3 x 120glh Engineering Level 2 qualifications: Two BTEC Awards for inclusion on the DfE 2016 KS4 list: 3rd BTEC Award for inclusion on the 2017 DfE list. 12 Pearson BTEC L1/2 Award in Engineering Design and Product Investigation (120 GLH) Pearson BTEC L1/2 Award in Engineering Electronics and Computer Control Technologies (120 GLH) Pearson BTEC L1/2 Award in Engineering Materials and Manufacturing (120 GLH)
