This qualification is now approved in the 2020, 2021 & 2022 Key Stage 4 Performance Tables and is now available for registrations.

We have redeveloped the level 1 and 2 qualifications in this subject area into this combined Level 1/2 qualification for the 2020 performance tables to ensure that it continues to meet the needs of our centres as well as meeting the new DfE guidance. This new qualification has been renamed NCFE Level 1/2 Technical Award in Engineering and is now available for first teaching in September 2018.

This qualification is suitable for learners aged pre-16 and above.

This qualification is designed for learners who want an introduction to engineering that includes a vocational and project-based element. The qualification will appeal to learners who wish to pursue a career in the engineering sector or progress onto further study.

The 2018/19 synoptic project has now been retired and is available on this qualification page. The synoptic project for 2019/20 is due to be released in December 2019.
