Engineering and Advanced Technology Pathway

The Engineering and Advanced Technology Pathway at Career 6 prepares learners for university places in Engineering or related subjects, as well as apprenticeships of work in this area.

The combination of 3 or 4 A levels in Maths, Physics, Product Design and a Technical level in Engineering Design will create a programme of study suitable for further study, an apprenticeship or work in the future.

A Levels are a two-year programme of study, available in a variety of subjects. You will need to select three or four or you can select two or three A Levels and study these alongside a BTEC qualification in your chosen career path.
