Design Technology KS4.
Exam Board: Pearson/Edexcel.
This qualification will help you acquire knowledge, understanding and technical skills through work-related contexts as part of their Key Stage 4 learning.
The qualification is equivalent to and compliments GCSEs to help develop work-related skills in the Engineering sector. It will help broaden your experience and understanding of where your studies can take you in the future.
The course is split into three components.
Component 1: Exploring Engineering Sectors and Design Applications (Internally assessed) Learners will explore the links between the various engineering sectors and the role of design in the production of engineered products.
Component 2: Investigating an Engineering Project (Internally assessed) Learners will investigate the selection of materials, proprietary components, making processes and disassembly of a given engineered product. They will plan, reproduce, inspect and test a single component.
Component 3: Responding to an Engineering Brief (Externally assessed in February and May of Year 11) Learners will investigate and create solutions to problems in response to given engineering briefs.
You will be assessed through tasks set by your teacher that could take the form of presentations, practical assessments and reflective journals, and one exam with a set-task.
After completing your BTEC Tech Award, you will be in a great position to continue study. You can go on to further academic study such as A-levels, or further Level 3 vocational subjects such as the BTEC Level 3 National in Engineering.

The WJEC Vocational Award in Hospitality and Catering has been designed to support learners in schools and colleges who want to learn about this vocational sector and the potential it can offer them for their careers or further study. It is most suitable as a foundation for further study. This further study would provide learners with the opportunity to develop a range of specialist and general skills that would support their progression to employment. Employment in hospitality and catering can range from waiting staff, receptionists and catering assistants to chefs, hotel and bar managers and food technologists working for supermarket chains. All of these roles require further education and training either through apprenticeships or further and higher education.
This approach also enables learners to learn in such a way that they develop:
