The 180-credit BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma extends and deepens the specialist work-related focus from the BTEC Level 3 90-credit Diploma and the BTEC Level 3 Diploma. There is potential for the qualification to prepare learners for appropriate direct employment in the vocational sector and it is suitable for those who have decided that they clearly wish to enter a particular specialist area of work. It is broadly equivalent to three GCE A Levels. Some learners may wish to gain the qualification in order to enter a specialist area of employment or to progress to a higher education foundation degree, HND or other professional development programme. Other learners may want to extend the specialist nature of the subjects they studied on the Level 3 BTEC Diploma or another programme of study.

The BTEC qualifications in this specification have been developed in the engineering sector to give education and training for employees in the engineering industries. It helps engineering employees in the mechanical engineering sector opportunities to achieve a nationally recognized level 3 vocationally-specific qualification.

It gives full-time learners the opportunity to progress to vocational qualifications such as the Pearson BTEC Level 4 Higher National Diplomas in various Engineering programmes.  It give learners the opportunity to develop a range of skills and techniques, personal skills and attributes essential for successful performance in working life.
