How we help you deliver engaging courses for BTEC Engineering

At Matrix, we’re passionate about education and we map all of our solutions to levels of education in the UK. Our solutions, curriculum resources and the schemes of work we provide are also written to meet the specifications and expectations of qualifications from prestigious awarding bodies including BTEC, City & Guilds, the IMI, EAL, WJEC/Eduqas and many more.

On this page, we look at how we deliver fit-for-purpose solutions for the latest BTEC specifications for Engineering at level 3 ⟨National⟩ from 2016 and levels 4 & 5 ⟨Higher National⟩ from 2017. Our solutions, as you can see from the drop downs below, are mapped to fit in with each unit within those qualifications. We also work with many centres to deliver solutions for other BTEC qualifications, including the previous specifications such as the National spec from 2010. If you’d like further information on how we can help you, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

“Although we are only at the beginning of our mechatronics journey at UTC Leeds, the systems provided by Matrix are already proving invaluable. Pupils have very quickly been able to access industrial standard applications whilst seeing their relevance to the everyday products that they are familiar with. As a teacher it is very easy to follow the courseware Matrix provide, whilst still having the freedom to use the systems independently.”

Andrew Mangham, Engineering Lecturer, University Technical College, Leeds

“The kits have proven invaluable for the Nissan production programmes. They are learning about Basic Electric all the way up to battery technology and AC/DC motor theory etc. They are an excellent teaching aid for our programmes.”

Steve Burr, Auto Skills Centre Manager, Gateshead College.

“At Cambridge Regional College we teach students from the BTEC level 2 up to HND. Flowcode has become an essential part of the coursework and fits in extremely well with the syllabus. Flowcode offers our students an overview of microcontroller systems and allows problematic thinking to evolve with microelectronic designs.
Using Flowcode allows advanced designs to be constructed from start to finish. Students can work at their own skill level and adopt personal project design.
The software is unique in the educational workspace and creates an almost limitless new learning environment. There is so much creativity now available to our students that we can run a great deal of our classes using the program.
We believe the Flowcode experience is something students should all have access to for its designing and learning possibilities. The people at Matrix have created something truly amazing and Flowcode cannot be called anything other than a world class product.”

Steve Collins, Cambridge Regional College
