Why AQA Engineering?

Our Engineering qualifications allow students to develop skills and understanding which will be of use generally and as part of a progressive career path, which could lead to further academic study or employment.  Our specifications can be taken as stand-alone qualifications or combined to give a broader understanding of the world of engineering.

We offer qualifications from GCSE and Level 1/2 through to Level 3 giving a broad range of study within engineering, giving students the opportunity to study exciting and innovative topics.  These specifications introduce students to the world of engineering and allow schools and colleges to devise programmes which can be delivered as manageable tasks.

To assist you in delivering our engineering qualifications, we offer a comprehensive range of support and resources including direct contact with dedicated staff, resources to help you plan and deliver our courses and teacher CPD courses.
