Warwickshire College Group has opted into the TEF and received a Bronze award.
The Higher National Engineering awards are designed to provide each student with engineering knowledge and understanding appropriate to their engineering interests, employment and vocational needs.
To achieve the new Higher National Diploma (RQF) you will be required to complete a selection of modules which amount to 240 credits.
There are both core and proposed optional units on this course:
Professional Engineering Management
Proposed Optional units:
Managing System Engineering
Further Electrical and Electronic Principles
A wide range of assessment methods and equipment appropriate to the learning outcomes and assessment criteria will be used, and will consider the practices used within the engineering sector.
Whilst credit is awarded at a threshold level of achievement only, grading arrangements will apply to individual units which will allow for the reward of merit and distinction achievement according to Edexcel's published grading domains and criteria.
Provision will be made for all engineering Higher National students to be eligible for grades beyond a pass level.
Assessment is considered an important part of the learning process. In designing the forms of assessment for this award, care has been taken to ensure that all assessments test the skills and knowledge needed in the Engineering working environment. Formative and summative assessment methods are diverse and include problem based assignments, work-based projects requiring oral and written reports, individual exercises experimental work, work-based assignments and phased tests.
