Description Please note: If you are a member, please login to recveive the member rate. By becoming a member you can attend CPD and purchase teaching resources at a greatly reduced rate. This course is aimed at developing the basic practical skills, knowledge and understanding associated with working in school Engineering workshops. It recognises that with the many varied routes into teaching, entrants begin their careers with varying expertise and experience of using essential equipment and in some cases teachers without formal Design and Technology training are teaching aspects of the subject. Whilst expressing concern about staffing, the Design and Technology Association is keen to ensure that all teachers working in D&T are supported and provided with opportunities to develop their capability in order that technical aspects of the subject are addressed. The course has been designed to address the most commonly used basic engineering bench manufacturing processes associated with working with metal in school workshops, some of which apply equally to the use of polymers. Delegates will practice the skills themselves through completing several small practical tasks developed for the purpose. Tools and processes will include: Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Marking out and measurement Cutting: use of hacksaws, tinsnips and bench shears. Shaping: cold bending and forming Riveting: pop and snap Screw thread cutting: taps and dies Drilling: hand drill, machine drills and types of bits used to remove material. Finishing: using hand files, abrasives and buffing. This course covers important aspects of health and safety but should not be confused with our health and safety accreditation programme. It concerns developing skills safely but it does not cover 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 are fully Health and Safety accredited and have relevant up to date certification covering the aspects of D&T they teach - the CORE is an essential start that includes - Culture - Risk Assessment - Management.
