A big Welcome to Engineering Students joining us from St Peters, Exeter.
We are really looking forward to showcasing our successes here on this page !!
Joining Southwest Schools through a common interest in Engineering.
We are all enrolled on the combined Level 1, Level 2 course in Engineering. The course has been designed by the WJEC examination board, click on their logo to find out more. In a nutshell you will complete two controlled assessments, and have two opportunities to get the best grade that you can in the examination.
So you have three Units to complete:-
- Unit 1, a graphics based "Re- Engineering" of an existing product,
- Unit 2, a make without design task in which you showcase your practical skills,
- Unit 3, an examination full of questions about the wonderful world of Engineering
LET ME IN !! The two year course has been broken down into chunks or sections that make it easy to follow, understand and most of all enjoy. Each section has been put into a PDF for you to look at on your PC, laptop, Tablet or Mobile Phone, so you can learn in school, at home or on the move. You will start with developing graphic skills, so that you can graphically re-engineer a product. Then move onto gaining the Knowledge and Understanding that you will need to pass the June examination. And then onto the really fun bit, the workshop experience, in which you will develop the skills needed to make a pretty cool working prototype.
EXEMPLAR WORK: SETTING THE STANDARDS HIGH FOR SUCCESS
We will use this space to showcase exemplar work produced by teachers and students.
As young engineers it is important that you set high standards for yourselves.
These images show work that we all should aspire to.
SET HIGH STANDARDS FOR SUCCESS.
PCSA Year 10 Engineer, Joshua Cross, has made an excellent start on his Engineering Graphics
Well done Joshua!!
Joshua is really setting high standards for himself and his classmates.
We are all working towards Unit 1, the controlled assessment.
In the Controlled Assessment we will all be Re-Engineering or Reverse Engineering a Mobile Phone Charger
