'The sixth form leader has high expectations and a very strong understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of this area.'Ofsted 2018

The Engineering sector continues to suffer from a skills gap and needs to keep up with rapidly developing technologies. The BTEC Extended Certificate that the Technology Department offers has been designed to develop the knowledge and specific skills required to follow a path towards a variety of engineering disciplines.

Students follow a two year course of study that consists of four units focusing on 3 compulsory areas (engineering principles, delivery of engineering processes safely as a team and engineering product design and manufacture) and one optional (work experience in the engineering sector). A range of skills are developed throughout the course, especially the ability to communicate clearly when writing technical reports.
