Overview: The Diploma in Engineering at SCQF Level 7 is designed to recognise the competence of engineering operatives and technicians across a range of engineering environments. This requires the learner to be employed in a relevant engineering role. This Competence Based Qualification is gained when all necessary units have been achieved. The centre will then be able to apply for the learner’s certificate of achievement. The learner will also receive a certificate of unit credit, listing all the units they have completed, which may be used as accredited prior learning to complete a future qualification where applicable.
Qualification pre-requisites: There are no formal entry requirements for this qualification. Learners must have been initially assessed to ensure they have both the potential and opportunity to achieve the assessment criteria set out in the qualification units and gain evidence from the workplace.
Who is this qualification for?: The Level 7 units have been designed to cover those learners who are either: • Individuals that need to acquire Engineering competencies for the engineering sectors • Individuals employed in the Engineering sectors who require additional competencies as part of an existing job role or to enable career progression
Minimum entry age: 16

How is this qualification assessed?: Learners will be required to create a Portfolio of Evidence to prove their competence in the workplace. Learners should therefore select the units that reflect the job role they carry out in their workplace to be able to obtain the required workplace evidence. Learners will be assessed in relation to their chosen discipline and endorsed accordingly. The endorsement will be printed on their certificate to show future employers which discipline was covered during their assessment.
