Teacher in Charge: Mr A. NugentRecommended Prior Learning
12 credits in Level 1 Design Technology including AS91047 (Generic Technology 1.4) and AS91057 (Construction and Mechanical Technologies 1.2) or by negotiation with the HoD, Mr Nugent.
Design Technology at Level 2 extends the skills and knowledge of Level 1 with a focus on advanced technical skills and designing for a particular client. Students will be expected to apply their personal design skills to a situation that also requires careful consideration of their client's needs/wants.
There is more flexibility in Level 2 Design Technology and students will be able to work on more elaborate individualised projects that are restricted only by their creative thinking skills and enthusiasm. Due to the individualised nature of projects, course costs could vary between students.
As some of the coursework is online, it is highly recommended that students bring an appropriate device to class.
Materials for their projects will be costed and a fee will be determined if the student wishes to take their completed product away.
