- Peer mentoring
Achievement of the Diploma will allow access to the final year of a BSc (Hons) in Engineering Management. As this is a work-based, distance/blended learning course a variety of approaches to teaching and learning will be utilised to reflect the academic level, content and outcomes.
Learners applying for the Diploma must have a Level 3 Diploma in a relevant subject area such as a Level 3 Diploma in Medical Equipment Technology, an A-Level in Mathematics and GCSEs in English and Science.

Delivery and Assessment:
Learning takes place predominantly in the work place mainly through the completion of workbooks, online activities and tests, direct practice with supervision by the mentor in the workplace and through peer group discussions on the virtual learning environment. High levels of contact time are offered through the dedicated web support of Moodle. Alternatives to traditional class-based study allow learners to undertake learning at a time and pace which suits them. This makes the programme more accessible than a traditional university course. One day practical-based sessions and assessments form part of the Diploma where attendance at our site is mandatory delivered on a Friday every ten weeks.
Modules are delivered sequentially, avoiding the need for students to complete and submit assessments for multiple modules concurrently. Find further module information here
