EAL SVQ Level 3 Communication Electronics

These Level 3 SVQs are work based qualifications that are suitable for people working in an engineering environment.  These courses are suitable for ALL ages from young apprentices (16 – 19) to mature semi-skilled employees.  The learner meets with his assessor usually on a monthly basis and submits logs (personal statements) as well as answer unit knowledge questions to the assessor.  The work can also be submitted electronically, if this is more desirable.   The learner has to build a portfolio of evidence to obtain the qualification and assure his employer and future employers his/her competence in the industry.

The programme normally takes from about 12 months to 2 years to complete, depending on the experience and work ethics of the learner.  The assessor will also observe the learner in the workplace and .

What subjects will I study?

Subject studied will include:

• Complying with statutory regulations and organisational safety requirements.
• Reading and using engineering drawings and specifications.
• Working efficiently and effectively in engineering.

Other units will be set into a qualification pathway to suit the needs of the student and the employer, as detailed below.

How will I be assessed?

The SVQ is assessed on practical work in the work place and a portfolio of work. It also includes questioning to show an underpinning knowledge of engineering work, and is assessed by a trained assessor coming into your working environment and assessing you on real installations that you are working on.

For apprentices or semi skilled workers this programme/training gives the complete coverage of hands on practical assessments making a competent and highly skilled worker

How long is the course?

The SVQ is work-based and is designed to reflect the skills and knowledge of people who work in the engineering industry. The qualification is taken over 12-24 months depending on each individual.
