Pupils at Ambergate are really getting to grips with their practical skills during a new Design and Technology Entry Level Certificate lead by Miss Clark.
Pupils have been using Greenfields Academy’s workshop facilities (another C.I.T. School) to develop their knowledge and skills of health and safety in a workshop environment, setting up and using machinery and hand tools as well as building their confidence and team work skills.
This term pupils have been following the design process to design, develop and begin to manufacture their own wall clock.
During theory lessons pupils have been researching materials, fixings and modern designers as well as developing a Design brief and specification to follow during manufacture of their wall clock.
Great work, well done to all!
