“Greenpower Education Trust is delighted that its long-running, successful STEM enrichment project for young people has been recognised by two of the
examination boards – OCR and Pearson. UK
OCR are launching four new Cambridge Nationals engineering qualifications for the 2014/15 school year. Each one is a GCSE equivalent and will be mapped to the Greenpower IET Formula 24 car design and build as a practical resource for students to use in the exam.
Likewise Pearson are launching their two new specialist BTEC First Awards: the Pearson BTEC Level 1/Level 2 First Award in Engineering Design and Product Investigation and the Pearson BTEC Level 1/Level 2 First Award in Engineering Electronics and Computer Control Technologies.
Once again, the Greenpower IET Formula 24, and 24+ design and build will be closely mapped to these awards and will be able to be used as a practical resource within the qualification. This work with leading education providers is a great endorsement of the high standards of engineering enrichment Greenpower has been offering to schools over the last 15 years.”
