City and Guilds 2357

The City and Guilds 2357 Level 3 Diploma in Electrotechnology was introduced to replace the outgoing City and guilds 2330 and 2356 qualifications which are being made redundant as part of the Government switch to the QCF suite of qualifications. The City and Guilds 2357 combines both of the older qualifications.

The Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) is a new framework designed by the government to make vocational qualifications easier and simpler and City and Guilds 2357 is part of this. In order to achieve a qualification the student needs to gain points and the number of points gained will affect the level of the qualification the student receives:

  • Award – 1 to 12 credit qualifications
  • Certificate – 13 to 36 credit qualifications
  • Diploma – 37+ credit qualifications

The City and Guilds 2357 qualification is larger than most because it incorporates two qualifications. Below are the different units of the City & Guilds 2357 course.
