Year 10

Engineering Technologies is a wide-ranging course that involves many aspects of trade related skills. The course is an introduction to most technical and allied trades. The full course requires students to complete six individual units, three mandatory (Engineering environment awareness, Engineering Techniques and Engineering Maths and Science principles) and three technical units (Hand Fitting, CAD, MIG Welding).

It involves many skills that students will learn through the course such as:

  • planning tasks
  • independent working
  • measuring and marking using basic mathematics
  • safe use of hand and power tools
  • safe use of machinery
  • technical drawing
  • basic machinery maintenance

 

The course is assessed with both an online multiple-choice exam and practical assessments.

Students will do the three mandatory units this year. Each unit will involve learning theory-based knowledge that relates to the Engineering industry as well as carrying out a variety of practical task. If a student shows competence and works hard then they may move on to the technical units earlier.

The course is assessed with both an online multiple-choice exam and practical assessments.

Students have been taught the practical techniques and knowledge in Year 10 and will undertake the unit paperwork and all practical assessments this year. Each unit will involve learning theory-based knowledge that relates to the end of year exam which the students will be required to revise for. They will be prepared for the exam by end of module tests throughout Year 11.
