Description This course is aimed at developing the practical skills, knowledge and understanding associated with working in school workshops, with respect to engineering manufacturing tools and machinery. It recognises that with the many varied routes into teaching, entrants begin their careers with varying expertise and experience of using essential equipment. It also acknowledges that in some schools, teachers who are not trained to teach D&T are being required to teach some aspects of the subject at Key Stage 3. Whilst the D&T Association does not in many cases approve of this arrangement, it is keen to ensure that non-D&T trained teachers placed in this position, are supported and provided with opportunities to develop their capability. The course has been designed to address the most commonly used manufacturing processes associated with working with metal, some of which apply equally to the use of polymers. Delegates will be given demonstrations and be taught about approaches and strategies for using equipment with groups of D&T students. They will also practice the skills themselves through completing a number of small practical tasks developed for the purpose. Tools, processes and machinery addressed will include: Basic knowledge in: Shaping, Drilling, Cutting, Joining and finishing metal including Machine skills with the lathe, milling machine and pillar drill. This course is not a health and safety course. It is designed to develop skills safely but it does not cover all aspects required for meeting core and specialist extension skills necessary for D&T Association H&S accreditation. We strongly recommend that all D&T teachers undertake additional H&S training and accreditation. Trainer: Paul Boyd
