About this level

Level 5 is ideal if you are already an established manager and have a sound knowledge of technical design principles. You now want to gain specialist skills, manage a larger team or take on responsibility for larger or more complex projects.

You complete two core units:

  • Engineering Project Practical Assignment
  • Advanced Electrical Principles.

You also choose one specialist pathway from:

  • Electronic Engineering
  • For Electronic Engineering you complete one optional unit from:

    • Control Systems and Applications
    • Micro-electronic Circuits and Systems.

  • Electrical Engineering
  • For Electrical Engineering you complete one optional unit from:

    • Distribution and Utilisation of Electrical Energy
    • Generation and Supply of Electrical Energy
    • Electrical Plant and Equipment.

What's involved in delivering this course?
To deliver International Vocational Qualifications (IVQs) you'll need to provide your learners with a suitable learning environment and the resources they need to complete the practical and theoretical aspects of the qualification. You will need qualified internal assessors.

For these City & Guilds courses in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, you will need suitable electrical equipment and workshops.

Anyone can take the Level 2 qualification, but you must make sure all your learners can access the resources they need to complete it.

To find all the resource requirements for assessment and delivery, download the course handbooks from the centre documents section.

All learners who want to take the Level 3 or Level 5 qualifications must be employed in the electronic engineering industry. You must make sure they can access all the resources they need to complete the qualification.

Which level is right for me?

Level 2
You have just left full-time education or you are looking for a career change. Although you have never worked in the electronic engineering sector, you are interested and keen to learn.
Level 3
You have some skills and experience in the electrical engineering industry and may be working in a role with some supervisory responsibilities. You want to develop your skills to move into a more specialist role or take on more management responsibility.

Level 5
You are already an established manager in an electronic engineering organisation and have a sound knowledge of technical design principles. You now want to gain specialist skills, manage a larger team or take on responsibility for larger or more complex projects.
What careers can this lead to?

The Level 2 Certificate prepares you for your first job in electronic engineering, probably at the technician level. The Level 3 and Level 5 Diplomas prepare you for a range of roles, including:

  • Electrical engineer
  • Electrical engineering technician
  • Electrician
  • Electronic engineering technician
  • Electronics assembler
  • Electronics engineer.

They can also help you move into supervisory or management roles such as:
