Why AQA for Tech-level Engineering?

Our Tech-level qualifications in engineering have been developed in collaboration with employers, higher education institutions and professional bodies. They provide pathways into diverse, emerging and exciting jobs or further study.

Our Tech-level qualifications are included in the Department for Education (DfE)'s performance tables for technical and vocational qualifications aimed at students aged 16 to 19. They also attract UCAS tariff points .

We’ve contextualised transferable skills like communication, problem-solving, research and teamwork into the subject content. It’s an integral part of delivery and assessment and prepares learners for life in either employment or further study.
