INTRODUCTION to the TRADES 22P - Full Year (Double Course)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr G. Case

Introduction to the Trades extends the skills and knowledge of DST 12F and offers students the opportunity to apply them on real-world building projects. Students will learn to use a range of hand tools, portable power tools and machines under supervision, select and correctly use the appropriate materials and fastenings as well as learning to interpret simple drawings to obtain building dimensions.

The course is assessed by unit standards and covers (this may differ slightly depending on student needs):
• Furniture making
• Completing minor concrete works
• Constructing garden furniture
• Using hardware and fastenings
• Occupational Safety and Health (OSH)

It is expected that students will achieve between 18-30 credits during the year long course.

NB: This course is a double subject for 10 periods per week.


Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

$35.00 for consumables - this cost also covers take home projects.
