Is this course right for me?

You will work through the process from a design brief to producing a fully detailed drawing.


  • No formal entry requirements
  • You should have some basic computer skills including being able to save and locate files and access websites
  • Learners must be at least 16 years old

The learner will be given a specific drawing brief or a request for a change/modification to a drawing, and they will be required to access these requirements and extract all necessary information in order to carry out the drawing operations.

Next select the appropriate equipment and drawing software to use, based on the type and complexity of the drawing functions to be carried out.

Then use current British, European, International and company standards to produce a drawing template for a range of paper sizes that must include the drawing title, scale used, date of drawing, material to be used and other relevant information. The learner will then be expected to produce fully detailed drawings to enable the manufacture, assembly, installation or modification of the product to take place.

On completion of the drawing activities, the learner will be expected to return all documentation, reference manuals or specifications to the designated location, to shut down the CAD system correctly and to leave the work area in a safe and tidy condition.

Learners are able to complete either the full qualification or certain units or elements through the medium of Welsh/bilingually.

  • Continuous assessment during the course
  • Portfolio of evidence

Following successful completion of this course learners could look to progress to a higher level course at the College, seek an appropriate Apprenticeship or go directly into employment.
