The qualifications provide a thorough grounding in the key concepts and practical skills required in their sector and their national recognition by employers allows progression direct into employment. BTEC Higher Nationals offer a strong emphasis on practical skills development alongside the development of requisite knowledge and understanding in their sector. Learners are attracted to this strong vocational programme of study that meets their individual progression needs whether this is into employment or to further study on degree or professional courses. A key progression path for BTEC Higher National Certificate and Diploma learners is to the second or third year of a degree or honours degree programme, depending on the match of the BTEC Higher National units to the degree programme in question. The BTEC Higher National Certificate and Diploma offer a progression route to the professional qualifications offered by Engineering Council UK and relevant Licensed Member organisations. BTEC Higher Nationals in Aerospace Engineering have been developed to focus on: the education and training of aerospace engineers/technicians who are employed in a variety of types of technical work, such as aerospace systems design, manufacture, maintenance and technical services areas of the aerospace industry providing opportunities for aerospace engineers/technicians to achieve a nationally recognised level 4 vocationally specific qualification providing opportunities for full-time learners to enter employment as engineers/technicians or progress to a higher education vocational qualification such as a full-time degree in the aerospace engineering fields of electronics, mechanical, mechatronics or related areas providing opportunities for learners to focus on the development of higher level skills in a technological and management context providing opportunities for learners to develop a range of skills, techniques and attributes essential for successful performance in working life providing a significant basis for progression to Incorporated Engineer level, via further learning. developing a range of skills and techniques, personal qualities and attributes essential for successful performance in working life and thereby enabling learners to make an immediate contribution to employment preparing learners for a range of technical and management careers in aerospace engineering equipping individuals with knowledge, understanding and skills for success in employment in the aerospace engineering industry providing specialist studies relevant to individual vocations and professions within aerospace engineering and its related industries, in which learners are working or intend to seek employment enabling progression to an undergraduate degree or further professional qualification in aerospace engineering or related area</p> <p>These qualifications meet the needs of the above rationale by:</p> <p>B015592 Guidance and units Edexcel Level 4 BTEC Higher Nationals in Aerospace Engineering Issue 1 July 2004</p> <p>7</p> <p>giving opportunities for learners to develop and practise skills, knowledge and understanding required for category B staff under JAR-66 aircraft maintenance licence of the Civil Aviation Authorities (CAA) requirements.</p> <p>Professional body recognitionThe BTEC Higher Nationals in Aerospace Engineering have been developed with career progression and recognition by professional bodies in mind. Thus this development...</p>
