Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr K. Meyer.

Required Prior Learning

Open Entry.

This is a practical based Engineering course incorporating Competenz (Engineering) and Industry Training Organisation Unit Standards. The course is intended to provide students with a well-balanced practical course. 

It will help students to develop lifelong skills that stimulate self-esteem,confidence and a sense of pride that will enable them to become readily employable in the Engineering industry. Students will gain experience in decision making through practical problem solving, develop self-discipline and a range of practical skills that permit safe and correct use of tools and materials, practicing the skill of reading measuring tools and calculating. Because some of the same Unit standards are offered in both L2AUTO and L2TMEG courses, students cannot select both of these subject options.

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 21 credits from this internally assessed course.
