Where will it lead?
The course provides a foundation from which to access higher education and more specialist courses allied to the Engineering sector. This could be engineering degrees offered by universities or more vocational, work-based, learning via apprenticeships. Employment within engineering remains buoyant, with industry demand for skilled workers frequently outstripping supply.
