Level Two Welding and Fabrication

This level two course provides a comprehensive follow on in welding and fabrication for those who may be furthering their career to work as an engineer. This qualification can be completed successfully in the College environment without the work-based evidence.

What will I study?

Units include:

  • Working safely in an engineering environment
  • Working efficiently and effectively in engineering
  • Using and communicating technical information
  • Using MMA/MIG welding
  • Hand forging engineering materials
  • Producing mechanical engineering drawings using CAD
  • Cutting and shaping materials using thermal cutting equipment

How will I be assessed?

Each unit of study contains a list of tasks or competencies that have to be successfully completed to the required standard. These tasks can be assessed in a number of different ways such as being observed by a qualified assessor or checked via relevant written work in a logbook. You will complete a substantial portfolio of evidence of work during the course that will consist of exercises, logbook entries and photographic evidence.

How will the course be delivered?

Full time study programme over three days per week including English and mathematics development, enrichment and enterprise.
