These resources support the delivery of Engineering Studies in the FE sector. This session is aimed at students studying a Level 3 Automotive Engineering course. The students should have previous background knowledge with regards to vehicle braking systems and a basic engineering background. They should have all studied at least to a GCSE level. It can also be used as revision aids for students studying at a higher level, or to anyone with an interest or who are in industry. For more materials relating to this resource, please visit the NGfL site, linked below.
This is a complete workbook for units including engines, steering and suspension, vehicle braking systems, vehicle ignition systems and veicle coooling & lubrication systems as part of the level 1 motor vehicle studies course,I present. Please feel free to use and amend any parts.
A comprehensive set of resources for Key Skills in the Motor Vehicle Sector, also suitable for the learner in the Workplace.
These resources can support the learner in developing and applying the skills and knowledge required for applying Key Skills in a Motor Vehicle context
Guidelines and activities to present a unit on bridges in years 3-6.
In years 3 and 4 the work includes designing and building a bridge to cross a river.
Progression is assured in years 5 and 6 by asking the pupils to design a bridge that can open and close and/or can be lit up.

The next powerpoint in the series of lessons will introduce the properties of materials used in an electrical component. <br />
It may not cover all aspects that you are required to teach during the GLH but hopefully will start you off on a good basis to move forward.<br />
Thoughts and ideas are welcome via my website www.thedtteacher.com<br />
The reason this product was chosen is so you can fulfil all the requirements of each assignment. <br />
The product has to have 2 component parts.<br />
The product should be accessible to students.<br />
Pupils should be able to talk about: <br />
The technical specifications and performance of the product – Form, function, User Requirements, performance requirements, ease of manufacture/ease of maintenance/ law and safety requirements. <br />
The materials and components used in making the product and alternatives – Chromium molybdenum alloy/steel and rubber/<br />
The manufacturing process of 2 components of the product <br />
The quality issues relating to the product during and after manufacture. <br />
An Introduction lesson to inspire learners to take up an engineering subject. Includes detailed lesson plan. Aims and Objectives: Students to investigate the meaning of the word engineering. Students to analyse the different job types within engineering. Students to evaluate an area of engineering – turbine/energy engineering in the form of a mini project.<br />
This unit contains multiple readings, activities, and worksheets related to man-made flight. Below is a brief summary of what’s in this unit. <br />
Science Readings: Four short readings on flight with questions and tasks. These are great to use as bell ringers or for your students to work through to increase their understanding of flight. The readings answer the following questions;<br />
How do planes fly?<br />
How does a jet engine work?<br />
How does a hot-air balloon work?<br />
How does a helicopter fly?<br />
Activities: Two hands on activities with worksheets. These activities will engage your students - they are easier done with smaller classes or in larger spaces such as a gym. Activities; Paper helicopter investigation.<br />
Paper plane investigation. <br />
Research Projects: Included are three organizers which will provide guidance to your students as they conduct research. Best done if your students have access to the internet. Suggested links are included.<br />
Topics are; The first flight: The Wright brothers<br />
Choose a plane to research<br />
Choose a pilot to research<br />
Other activities/worksheets: Also included in this unit are the following activities and worksheets listed below: <br />
Design presidents plane: area & design math activity<br />
Create a passport: design/art activity<br />
Race around the world: look at flight times and research the wonders of the world.<br />
Story/Writing activity: write a story about a fictional plane journey<br />
Videos and games: extra information for the teacher which suggests some good videos and games related to flight.
