KS4 IMIAL Level 2 Certificate in Service and Maintenance Engineering
What is covered on the course?

The content of this qualification has been designed to give learners a broad understanding of the engineering sector.  The mandatory, core and self-development units help build this broad understanding, whilst the specialist units will allow for a limited amount of specialist knowledge to be gained and the limited development of specialist practical skills.

These qualifications are designed to be focused on the taught content and are aligned to a number of progression routes in engineering, as well as linking to core GCSE curriculum areas in maths and science.

How is the course assessed?

The course is assessed through ongoing assessment of work which is moderated by both an internal assessor and the exam board’s assessor. This qualification will be assessed by using externally set and marked on line tests, internally marked practical tasks and written assessments. There is also a written project which encompasses the synoptic assessment element to this qualification. There are online tests for the subject.
