L1 Technology Wood

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr K. Meyer.

A student-centred course dealing with real problem solving in a practical environment. The students use technological practice to produce a creative practical solution. This involves researching possible solutions and applying that research to the final practical solution. Students will investigate how to manipulate, experiment with, and use a variety of materials. 

They will learn about sustainable practices, in cultural and contemporary contexts, as well as gaining knowledge in the use of fixed machinery.

This is an academic course ideal for students wishing to progress to L2 and L3 Technology, and then possibly university engineering, or any other design or technology-based career. The students will gain practical skills from this course.

 This course will be assessed to a selection of L1 Technology Achievement Standards. Assessment is a combination of both internally and externally assessed standards. Technology is an approved domain subject and is appropriate for students intending to study at university.

Required Prior Learning

Either proven performance in Year 10 Technology and/or at the discretion of HOD Technology.
