Workshop Technology

Year 13

Building construction

Prerequisites Students must have some experience in Workshop Technologies. Students who wish to take Level 3 Building & Construction in 2022 must seek prior approval from the HoD Design & Technology. Description This course follows a similar format to the Year 12 course where student ability and knowledge of a wide variety of building and construction tools and machinery are assessed. The skills learnt lead to a career in the building and construction industry. Typically, students will work in small groups outside during the dry-weather terms on small-scale construction projects (fence, deck, playground equipment, small shed). During the winter months, students are required to complete individually built furniture items. The breakdown of time allocation for this course equates to about 80% in a workshop environment, and 20% in a design and theory classroom.

Assessment This course contributes towards NCEA Level 3, with all 17 credits internally assessed.

The following Unit Standards will be assessed:

• US 29682 (4 credits – internal) Select, use, and maintain tools, equipment and machinery. • US 29679 (8 credits – internal) Develop and use BCATS project documentation. • US 29680 (5 credits – internal) Communicate and work collaboratively, All assessments use Industry Training Organisation-designed and moderated (BCATS) assessment material.
