This Level 2 Award in Industrial Environment Awareness is designed to meet the needs of learners and employers across the manufacturing industry. This EAL qualification has been designed for those learners who are working in an industrial environment but have no formal qualifications, are completing an Apprenticeship in Improving Operational Performance, are looking for career progression within the industrial workplace or wish to learn additional knowledge relevant to the workplace.
EAL has designed a ‘self-study’ booklet for this qualification that allows flexible delivery of the learning outcome requirements to suit the needs of learners and employers. The booklet can be downloaded from the EAL website and allows learners to work through the material at their own pace, with ‘knowledge checks’ to test them on the information they have covered. The EAL Level 2 Award in Industrial Environment Awareness is assessed through an online examination of 20 multiple choice questions based on the content of the workbook. There is still a need for learner support and tutorial-style activities to support delivery.
The qualification can be delivered in a secure environment off the job, at the workplace and in a training facility/college environment.
