Total Qualification Time (TQT) includes all supervised or direct contact time (Guided Learning Hours/GLH) and an estimate of the number of hours a learner will reasonably spend studying not under immediate guidance or supervision.
TQT has now been assigned to the following qualifications:
This qualification is part of the Cambridge Nationals in Engineering suite. It is aimed at students who wish to study the processes involved in designing engineered products. Through research and practical activities, students will understand the requirements of a design specification and how market requirements and opportunities inform client briefs. Students will use practical skills such as drawing, computer modelling and model making to communicate design ideas. This qualification can be delivered on its own or in combination with any other qualifications from the Cambridge Nationals in Engineering suite and can be taught in a holistic or modular style.
All Cambridge Nationals in Engineering qualifications are included on the 2020 performance tables.
