Engineering Exercises to Prepare Yourself for the Programme


Before you are offered a place on BTEC Level 3 Engineering course at the College of Further Education which is due to start in September, this is an opportunity to prepare yourself for the programme. However it should be noted that a place on the course is subject to you achieving the appropriate GCSE’s grades. The minimum requirement is a total of  4 grades at one of which must be in mathematics.

As a way of helping students prepare for this course we have prepared some resources for students to access on a website called “Blendspace”.

The resources are around the topic of Corrosion and include some reading, a couple of Power-point presentations, some questions and answers, a sample assignment and a link to a short video clip on YouTube.

You can access these resources by using the following Links for these lessons:
