What is the Advanced Manufacturing Engineering Level 3 Specialist Qualification?

 

The AME Level 3 is a staple in terms of engineering knowledge. It is a BTEC Specialist qualification, similar to the BTEC Nationals 2010 (QCF). It is available in different sizes, 3, 6, 9, 12 and 18 units. There are different pathways, such as Mechanical, Electrical/Electronic or Motorsport.

 

  • Each unit can be delivered individually, contact us for more information.
  • Each unit is graded at Pass, Merit or Distinction.
  • Level 3 is broadly equivalent to A’ Levels
  • Mechanical, Electrical pathways available

UCAS

Each pathway and size, will have different tariff points available, depending on the grade achieved. Grades available are Pass, Merit, Distinction

Progression Opportunities

This is a linear programme and students can progress from the Foundation Award to the Award, then to the Certificate and on to the Diploma.

Students who gain enough UCAS tariff points will be able to apply to the HNC Engineering (RQF)

Industry Support

These qualifications are supported by:

  • the Advanced Engineering and Manufacturing Apprenticeship Employer Group, which includes Jaguar Land Rover, Toyota, Ford, BMW, Vauxhall, Aston Martin, Nissan, GTA England
