GCSE Construction

"One only needs two things in life: WD-40 to make things go, and duct tape to make them stop." - G.M. Weilacher

Vision Statement

Within construction, pupils will look at ways to keep themselves and others safe when working in a workshop environment. They will learn about regulation, tools, materials, and their properties. This will help pupils to gain a wide understanding of the industry and how it works. Pupils will gain knowledge of how to keep a construction site safe and what is expected from them once they step foot onto a site. Pupils will learn how to be selective when working with materials and understand how to measure and cost up a project.

Curriculum Overview

There are many places in the industry where the construction process takes place. This qualification will cover skills such as carpentry, painting and decorating and heritage skill (pewter casting, colour glass windows, signage). This course will give you an insight into the job roles of trades people, inspectors, site supervisors, architects and project managers who work on these construction projects

Cultural Capital

The construction industry employs a wide range of trades from finance managers to carpenters. Within the construction course pupils will explore the range of jobs, their responsibilities and the salaries that they can earn. They will explore regulation such as HASAWA, COSHH, WAH and look at how they can keep themselves and others safe on site. They will learn about PPE and the expectations of an employer.
