Course descriptionThis half course develops and enhances the students' skills, knowledge and understanding of the issues involved with materials, manufacturing processes, compulsory health and safety legislation (BS4163 and PUWER 98) as it applies to Design and Technology Environments, and the theory and practice managing practical elements of learning and teaching in Design and Technology.

Students are expected to audit their current skill-sets and knowledge of materials origin, use, consideration of sustainability, manual and machine processes, and health and safety in a teaching environment. Individual students will arrive on course with a variety of previous experience and qualifications. Their capabilities are developed through practical, theoretical and scenario focussed activities.

Manufacturing Principles and Practice 1 course relates to other courses such as Design, Principles & Practices 2, Product Design Innovation 1 and 2 (Contexts and Final Project and Design and Technology Curriculum and Pedagogy 2.

The legislation and practice based workshops will further support Manufacturing 2 -where skills and knowledge in professional standard modelling, computer aided manufacturing and higher risk processes are developed.

Themes of Education 1 A (Lifespan, Socialisation and Learning) and Education 1B (Teaching and learning and the Social Context of Education) are developed through the examination of the role of Useful Play, Creating and Making in child development; the socialisation of young learners in high risk learning environments; teaching and learning approaches, individual needs and differentiation and the value and purposes of craft and manufacture in 21st century schooling.

Summary of Intended Learning Outcomes
By the end of the course the student will be able to:

1. Identify, select and justify appropriate materials and processes for specified applications, exploring alternatives and discussing compromises.
2. Apply critical understanding and discuss issues of commonly used materials; their properties, use, and processing the ways in which these influence decisions in design and manufacturing activities.
3. Demonstrate knowledge, application and competences required to comply with Health and Safety in a Design and Technology Environment ( BS4163 and PUWER 98 minimum)
4. Recognise and communicate the ways in which practical knowledge and skills are reflected in and contribute towards developing Technological Capability through Design and Technology Curricula.
5. Demonstrate progressive professional confidence, self-management and responsibility in managing resources, space, materials and tools in a practical environment.
Assessment Information
1. A range of manufactured artefacts and tasks which use a selection of resistant materials and manufacturing process, audited with Risk Assessments for processes and machines - skilfully, safely and appropriately applied. (70%) (This element will link to Design Principles and Purposes 1)

2. Examination on health and safety, professional responsibilities including scenario based assessment, dealing with incidents novices in school workshop - recognising risk, accident prevention in workshop/practical environments. This will be on a pass/fail basis.

3. An investigative report/project which explores a range of common materials used in manufacturing, issues of sustainability which surrounds them and alternatives which can be used. (30%) 1500 words

All assessments must be undertaken and passed. Students unable to satisfy the Health and Safety expectations of this course will have access to practical work restricted. This is likely to have a direct impact on the student's ability to undertake practical course work in other areas of the programme including school placement.
