iLearn Engineering aims to address the skills shortage of qualified engineers in the UK and internationally.
Our ethos is to make learning available to anyone anywhere anytime. Whether you are recently employed, looking to upskill, develop your career in engineering, or simply looking for qualifications to proceed to higher education, we can help.
There is now a greater emphasis on employer engagement and work readiness. Our new qualifications in Engineering are designed to reflect this increasing need for high quality professional and technical education pathways at Levels 4 and 5. These qualifications provide students with a clear pathway to employment, appropriate support during employment, and a recognised progression route to gain a BEng (Hons) degree via top-up with our partner UK university*.
