The Pearson BTEC level 3 90-credit Diploma (540 GLH) in Engineering is part of a larger suite of BTEC Engineering qualifications, in a range of sizes, which share a common purpose of helping people to become occupationally ready to take up employment in the engineering sector at the appropriate level. This can follow either directly after achieving the qualification, or via the stepping stone of Higher Education (HE) in university or college. By studying a BTEC National, learners develop knowledge, understanding and skills required by the sector, including essential employability skills, and apply them in real work contexts. Learners can operate at a standard that can reasonably be expected of an 18 year old in full-time education.

Within this suite the Pearson BTEC Level 3 90-credit Diploma (540GLH) is primarily a Technical Level qualification, equivalent in size to one and a half A levels. It has been designed as a one-year course enabling learners to develop a common core of knowledge including Health and Safety in the Engineering Workplace, Mechanical Principles and Applications or Electrical and Electronic Principles as a choice of specialist mandatory units, and allowing them the opportunity to study in more depth a range of option areas of their choice, such as Engineering Design and Commercial Aspects of Engineering Organisations. This Pearson BTEC Level 3 90-credit Diploma could be either for those starting in their final year of education, for example after taking a level 2 qualification post 16 and wishing to progress to Level 3, or a learner who wishes to complete their course after one year and move into an apprenticeship or training with an employer. The qualification supports progression to a wide range of roles within the sector, usually when accompanied by other qualifications achieved at level 2 or level 3, such as Mathematics, English, Business, IT or Physics.
