Industrial Technology Years 7–10 Syllabus

7.2Content for Years 7–10

INDUSTRIAL TECHNOLOGY – AUTOMOTIVE

The Automotive focus area provides opportunities for students to develop knowledge, understanding and skills in relation to automotive and associated industries.

Core modules develop knowledge and skills in the use of materials, tools and techniques related to automotive maintenance and repair which are enhanced and further developed through the study of specialist modules in automotive technologies.

Practical projects should reflect the nature of the Automotive focus area and provide opportunities for students to develop specific knowledge, understanding and skills related to automotive-related technologies. These may include:

maintenance and repair of small engines

automotive restorations

building a small powered vehicle

work undertaken on isolated automotive components.

Projects should promote the sequential development of skills and reflect an increasing degree of student autonomy as they progress through the course.

A note to teachers about practical experiences

To satisfy the requirements of the syllabus students must undertake a range of practical experiences that occupy the majority of course time. Practical experiences should be used to develop knowledge and understanding of and skills in designing, producing and evaluating. Student capability, confidence and expertise at their current stage of development are important considerations in determining the teaching and learning sequences in the course.

In developing and delivering teaching programs teachers should be aware of and adopt the relevant guidelines and directives of their education authorities and/or schools. Teaching programs should recognise and reflect relevant State and Commonwealth legislation, regulations and standards including Occupational Health and Safety, Chemical Safety in Schools and Animal Welfare guidelines. Teachers need to be aware of activities that may require notification, certification, permission, permits and licences.
