Teacher in Charge: Mr W. Du ToitPre-requisites
Must have successfully completed Y12 BCP. HOD approval.
This course covers basic knowledge of construction, cabinet making, furniture construction and wood turning. Most important are standards which are applicable to industry such as applying mathematical processes and communication. Standards are all from the BCITO.
The Level 3 unit standards do not specify particular projects. Instead, a project’s suitability is determined by its complexity and the ability to meet unit standards’ outcomes at Level 3. This provides flexibility for students (and teachers) to choose projects according to their interests and circumstances.
A Stage 3 BCATS project is one undertaken in a BCATS environment under limited supervision, using a broad range of tools, equipment, machinery and materials, and involving a range of standard processes.
All standards are internally assessed.
