TRADES EDUCATION 32F - Full Year
Teacher in Charge: Mr A. Nugent
This course extends the skills and knowledge of ITT22P and offers students the opportunity to apply them in a real-world setting, via management of their own project. A Level 3 BCATS project is one undertaken with limited supervision, using a broad range of tools, equipment, machinery and materials and involving a range of standard processes.
The Level 3 BCATS standards do not specify particular projects. Instead a project’s suitability is determined by its level of complexity and the ability of the student to produce a product that meets the technical specifications of the chosen standard. This provides flexibility for students (and their teachers) to choose projects according to the student's interests and circumstances. Due to the individualised nature of projects, course costs will vary between students
As some of the coursework is online, it is highly recommended that students bring an appropriate device to class.
