Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr A. Nugent

Recommended Prior Learning

Successfully completing ITT22P or by consultation with the HoD of Design Technology, Mr 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.

Learning Areas:

Design, Graphics and Technology

Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

Materials for take home projects will be costed and a fee will be determined if the student wishes to take their project away.
