Set a foundation towards lifelong learning with our Skills Pathway
Little makers are taught how to create engaging but simple projects using our child-friendly jigsaw machine and poplar wood.
We aim for our makers to gain the confidence to use our jigsaw machines independently by the end of this level.
At the end of this level, makers are comfortable using the jigsaw machine, vertical drill press and the woodturning lathe in the workshop independently.
Our makers become masters of straight, curved and arc cuts using the jigsaw machine by the end of this level.
By the end of this level, our makers can accurately use the machines to create functional objects they can put to their daily use.
By the end of this level, our makers are confident in using the workshop machines, and can apply finishing to their projects.
At the end of this level, makers now have had access to and learned about three different resistant materials - wood, metal and acrylic.
At the completion of this level, the maker is ready to move on to the design technology skill path, having mastered the use of machines.
Young makers experience advanced woodworking combined with other disciplines such as electrical wiring and using hand tools.
Makers make fun and interesting projects while learning the basics of cutting straight lines, curved lines and proper handling of hand tools in the workshop.
On completion of this level, makers are confident in using the jigsaw machine and a few hand tools.
Makers are encouraged to explore their creativity in this level and make modifications to projects.
By the end of this level, ideators become highly proficient with tools and machines and are able to make things from scratch using a proper design brief.
Innovators are challenged with more complicated project briefs with minimal supervision. They are also encouraged to design their own projects.
