Industrial Technology Years 7–10 Syllabus
As part of the decision to allow a student to access the Industrial Technology Years 7–10 Life Skills outcomes and content, it is important to identify relevant settings, strategies and resource requirements that will assist the student in the learning process. Clear time frames and strategies for monitoring progress, relevant to the age of the student, need to be identified and collaborative plans should be made for future needs.
It is not necessary to seek permission of the Office of the Board of Studies for students to undertake the Industrial Technology Years 7–10 Life Skills outcomes and content, nor is it necessary to submit planning documentation.
Life Skills assessment
Each student undertaking a Industrial Technology Years 7–10 Life Skills course will have specified outcomes and content to be studied. The syllabus content listed for each outcome forms the basis of learning opportunities for students.
Assessment should provide opportunities for students to demonstrate achievement in relation to the outcomes and to generalise their knowledge, understanding and skills across a range of situations or environments including the school and the wider community.
Students may demonstrate achievement in relation to Industrial Technology Years 7–10 Life Skills outcomes independently or with support. The type of support will vary according to the particular needs of the student and the requirements of the activity. Examples of support may include:
the provision of extra time
physical and/or verbal assistance from others
the provision of technological aids.
