L2 Building & Allied Trades

L2BUIL
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr K. Meyer

This course is designed to introduce students to skills and techniques found in the Building industry, including Carpentry, Construction and an insight into many of the associated sub-trades: Roofing, Plumbing and Electrical to mention a few. 

The students will be involved in planning projects, completing relevant documentation such as working drawings and cutting lists. They also gain experience in the use of workshop tools and equipment during the construction of their projects, and are also trained in the safe use of the portable power tools and hand tools they are likely to encounter in trade based workplaces.

Projects include a Saw Horse and Cape Cod Chair, both of which are take home projects. They will also work on community based projects such as outdoor seating and a small building.

This course will be assessed to a selection of Unit Standards at L2 incorporating written work with written tests and practical work. These are assessed by the classroom teacher and moderated by an external provider. Students will have the opportunity to gain up to 24 credits from this internally assessed course.
