DT & Construction

The year 11 Construction lessons involve practical skills, but also theory work in various skill areas including:-

  • Bricklaying
  • Joinery
  • Painting and Decorating
  • Building Drawing
  • Health and Safety


The work has a bias towards practical skills and assignments, but must also show a knowledge of tools, materials and methods etc. to back up the practical knowledge.


We now offer a BTEC Level 1 Introductory Certificate in Construction, which is mainly practical based, but also has theory-only elements which are needed to back up and verify the practical skills.


We are also looking to offer some online certificates in Health & Safety, Manual Handling and other Health & Safety related issues. These will be useful/ necessary to prepare students interested in following a career in the Construction industry.



We also offer D/T and Construction to other groups from 11 to 15 where we teach:

  • Basic woodworking skills,
  • Working with other materials ,
  • Using fixed and portable power tools
  • Product design
  • Health and safety
