Technology in the National Curriculum:
Technology in the National Curriculum provides a positive and stimulating approach to technological capability by concentrating on designing and making in various materials (wood, plastic, metal, food, textiles).
At Hilbre we concentrate on the development of traditional skills through the design approach. All students will be provided with this opportunity at Key Stages 3 and 4. CAD/CAM will also be incorporated into students' projects.
At Key Stage 4 we offer GCSE Resistant Materials and the Vocational BTEC in Engineering - Double award.
At Key Stage 5 students can take BTEC in Engineering Level 3.
Protective clothing and sensible footwear are essential for working in these departments.
