You say City & Guilds Senior Awards in by 16 August as they will be discontinued from 31 August. Meaning just a name change or will no longer available thought membership of a professional body. What will be the new system who do you apply to. Do C & G have a local office in every part of the world? Do not see an engineer sample report in the document below just an engineer manager.

And this is at the top of the tree.

Level 7 MCGI only limited to Leadership and Management or Engineering Management.

I am told this only applies from the 16th August 2013,
before that it was Engineering only (From C&G)

Well the other thing I should have said i applied for both via email, rather than sending in hard copies this may have speeded things up a bit and i did it this way because i wanted to make sure i got the applications in before the cut off date.
Just wish my EngTech application would go as fast as i applied for it about the same time

Thanks, I don't have any other C&G quals and am just waiting for my LCGI Engineering cert to come. So I'm not sure I either could or should apply for a FTC anyway?

I think the correct certificate name is Full Technological Certificate.
I think you have t have the city and guilds level 2 and 3 in order to be qualified FTC.
Tom , you may want t email them about FTC. requirement will they take LCGI instead of Lev 3 and 4.

City and guilds weights it FTC as equal to HNC.

Thanks, but I thought they identified LCGI as being equal to HNC (a level 4 qual)?

Would I have to surrender LCGI in order to 'upgrade' it to FTC?

The LCGI is equal on level 4 as FTC.

No surrendering LCGI required. I do think that they offer FTC as upgrade for these who hold level 2, 3 City and Guilds certificates.
It is detailed on their application form for FTC.

What I meant is that I don't know if they will accept LCGI for FTC.
I think they want the level 2, and 3 certificates.

Cheers, do you think there would be any point in me getting a FTC to go with my LCGI Senior Award - if it is possible? I'm not sure what benefit I see it adding? Thanks in advance.

Thanks, I will look into it once I receive my LCGI cert - but it reads to me like I will not be able to apply given that I have no previous C&G diplomas it appears to ask for.

Cheers.
