The Tools4Work Level 1 resources enable students to achieve the Competenz Level 1 National Certificate in Mechanical Engineering Technology (NCMET). The NCMET qualification is designed for secondary school students interested in engineering processes, with potential for careers in mechanical engineering and related trades.

The Level 1 NCMET qualification leads on to further engineering studies with the Level 2 NCME unit standards.

Achievement of the Level 1 NCMET qualification is an excellent preparation for Gateway programmes and engineering apprenticeships, and will demonstrate to prospective employers that the student has the skills required to commence employment in their industry.

The Level 1 NCMET qualification is based around the following compulsory unit standards;

  • US 22923 Demonstrate basic engineering skills under close supervision                                            Level 1      12 Credits

  • US 22924 Develop a simple product using engineering materials                                                          Level 1         10  Credits

  • US 22926 Demonstrate knowledge of safety procedures in a specific engineering workshop.         Level  1        2 Credits

  • AS  90157  Implement basic procedures using resistant materials to make a specific product.        Level  1       6  Credits

  • US 497 safety in industry                                                                                                                                  Level  1    3  Credits
  • US  4433     Measurement devices the use  and care of.                                                                               Level 1     2  Credits


These compulsory unit standards also incorporate the following skills and knowledge;

  • Basic workshop safety procedures

  • Basic engineering workshop techniques including: cutting, marking out, measuring, joining, assembly and finishing

  • Use of basic tools and machinery

  • Investigation, design and building of a simple product
