Unit 2: Developing our knowledge and understanding through working with specialist materials & techniques.

Students will gain a broad knowledge of construction skills including bricklaying, tiling, wallpapering and carpentry as well as repair tasks. Pupils will be shown how building are damaged through a lack of maintenance and will be given opportunities to repair damaged work.

Students will be assessed on their health and safety through and exam. Students will be assessed on a portfolio of work based on planning a construction assignment and this will be externally assessed. There is an internally assessed portfolio of work that will be based on all practical work undertaken in the lessons.

Unit 2: Practical Construction Skills

Students are currently working through their non-examination assessment which includes a written project that they must complete in order to complete a series of practical tasks. Their written project work will show their knowledge and understanding of planning a sequence of work to meet specific requirements, showing they can interpret technical information and apply skilled practical techniques in competition of a construction task.

Student's project work will be written in detail and at length using subject specific terminology to evidence how they will plan their practical construction task according to the specification. Student’s will complete their practical work in the time allocated to a highly finished standard ensuring they work safety and use tools with accuracy to demonstrate their skills. They will evidence their practical skills with photographs and notes to highlight their success in neat and organised folder ready for marking and moderation.

Developing our knowledge and understanding through working with specialist materials & techniques

Students will gain a broad knowledge of construction skills including bricklaying, tiling, wallpapering and carpentry as well as repair tasks. Students will be shown how building are damaged through a lack of maintenance and will be given opportunities to repair damaged work.

Students will undertake a variety of practical skills based on real world construction tasks and will write a report on their experience of these tasks.

Students will be assessed on their health and safety through and exam. Pupils will be assessed on a portfolio of work based on planning a construction assignment and this will be externally assessed. There is an internally assessed portfolio of work that will be based on all practical work undertaken in the lessons.

Unit 2: Maintaining the built environment project

Students are currently working through their non-examination assessment which includes a written project that they must complete in order to complete a series of practical tasks. Their written project work will show their knowledge and understanding of defects occurring in the built environment, how to detect defects, the impact of poor maintenance and different types of maintenance skills required to ensure the longevity of the built environment. Protection methods need to be considered to minimise maintenance and how builds can be damages through lack of planned maintenance. They will have practical opportunities to make repairs in order to gain practical skills and experience. Skills to be demonstrated include: building a stud wall, securing plaster boarding, applying plaster, then tiles, wallpapering and painting to finish. 

Student’s project work will be written in detail and at length using subject specific terminology to evidence how they will maintain the built environment. Student’s will complete their practical work in the time allocated to a highly finished standard ensuring they work safety and use tools with accuracy to demonstrate their skills. They will evidence their practical skills with photographs and notes to highlight their success in neat and organised folder ready for marking and moderation.
