TEMA1

Level 1 Hard Materials Technology

Course Description

This technology course requires learners to show evidence of design, craftsmanship, and investigations. The course will consist of Level 1 Technology Achievement Standards and Building, Construction ITO Unit Standards. This allows learners who complete the course to continue their study and follow either an Academic or a Vocational pathway.

The course will suit learners who want to develop practical hands-on skills in Design. Graphics and Construction fields. The development of creative designs, and working with a variety of materials helps to prepare learners to be self-motivated and capable in a workshop environment. The project themes will encourage learners to make decisions, solve problems, clearly analyse solutions, and to criticise their own work. This course will include a Design Portfolio and a series of written theory workbooks that support the practical skills being taught.

Costs: The cost of materials for the projects at Level 1 is $50. Should your child have time at the end of the course to embark on an extra project then the cost of those materials will be charged separately.

A strong emphasis is placed on the use of recycling materials, and the use of native timber where possible – all materials have to be paid for; as are NCEA fees.
