This qualification is a work related, competence based qualification. It reflects the skills and knowledge needed to do a job effectively, and shows that a learner is competent in the area of work the qualification represents. Learners will have access to state of the art machinery and equipment which will enable them to work in the Land Based Engineering industry.
Learners will be placed in an agricultural garage and attend college two days per week. You will be required to complete Essential Skills in Literacy, Numeracy and ICT at level 2 if you do not have a GCSE grade C in these subjects. You will also study broader transferable skills in Employability and Personal and Social Development where appropriate.
You will be able to remove and replace parts and components from tractors and machinery. You will also be able to service tractors and machinery.
The units will be assessed via work-based evidence in a portfolio. The authenticity, sufficiency and validity of the evidence will be judged by the assessor. There is one independent test which requires a pass mark of 50%.
Successful learners will progress to Level 3 Diploma in Work-based Land-based Engineering Operations which will subsequently lead to the Level 4 Certificate in Advanced Automotive Techniques.
