Engineering Department Vision

.For pupils to develop their curiosity, inquisitiveness, critical-thinking and problem-solving skills.

These attitudes and skills will equip pupils for their future everyday life and will encourage them to take up exciting and fulfilling STEM related jobs, careers and life opportunities.

Currriculum

Key Stage 4

BTEC Level 1/Level 2 Tech Award in Engineering

The course is made up of three components: two that are internally assessed and one that’s externally assessed. The three-block structure-  explore, develop and apply - has been developed to allow students to build on and embed their knowledge. This allows them to grow in confidence and then put into practice what they have learned.

The assessment structure is also designed so that students can build on what they learn, and develop their skills, as they move through the course.

Key Stage 5:

BTEC Tech Award Engineering Level 1 / 2

The Pearson BTEC Level 1/Level 2 Tech Award in Engineering (Qualification Number: 603/0829/1), is for learners who want to acquire technical knowledge and technical skills through vocational contexts by studying mechanical, electrical/electronic and engineering design as part of their  learning programme. The qualification recognises the value of learning skills, knowledge and vocational attributes to complement GCSEs. The qualification will broaden the learners experience and understanding of the varied progression options available to them.

The Award gives learners the opportunity to develop sector-specific knowledge and skills in a practical learning environment. The main focus is on four areas of equal importance,  which cover the:
• development of key engineering practical and technical skills, such as research, observation, measurement, making, using computer-aided design (CAD) and disassembly
• knowledge of key engineering sectors (mechanical, electrical/electronic and engineering design) and the interrelation of each in industry
• knowledge of the stages involved in planning and implementing an engineering project
• knowledge and skills involved in the investigation of solutions to engineering problems in response to a given brief.

This Award complements the learning in other GCSE programmes by broadening the application of ‘design and make’ tasks, working with an engineering brief, testing and evaluation.

Constructing and Maintaining the Built Environment
City & Guilds Level 2 Technical Award

This qualification allows you to explore the Construction and Built Environment industry. If you enjoy practical, hands on tasks but also want to discover how buildings are constructed and what happens when they require repair, maintenance or refurbishment then this qualification is for you.

You will explore the structure of the construction and built environment industry in terms of how different people work together to deliver construction projects. You will develop an understanding of what makes a building and how the selection of different materials, affects the overall look and feel. You will have the opportunity to carry out a selection of realistic practical construction tasks related to the repair, maintenance and refurbishment of a building. The qualification has four units:
 · Working in the built environment
· Construction methods and materials
· Maintenance, repair and refurbishment of buildings
· Using tools to construct and maintain buildings

The qualification develops the following knowledge, understanding and skills: 

  • · how people in the construction industry work together to deliver projects
    · an understanding of how and why different materials are used in the construction of buildings
    · how to interpret sources of information used in construction projects
    · producing plans and recommending actions for remedial action for buildings that require repair, maintenance and refurbishment
    · the importance of working safely on construction projects
    · different skills and techniques used in construction projects Level 2 Technical Award in Constructing and Maintaining the Built Environment (6720-21) 7
    · how to evaluate skills and techniques.
  • The understanding developed is fundamental to an introduction to any aspect of Construction and Building Services, including:
  • Design and Planning
  • Civil Engineering
  • Construction project management
  • Building services engineering specific qualifications (eg Electrical Services, Plumbing)
  • Construction craft qualifications
