I am a teacher of engineering with nearly 10 years experience. I endeavour to produce a range of resources that will help students to really engage with engineering as a subject and later, a profession. My resources are always produced to make it as easy as possible for you to change, edit add and remove content, or you can simply use the resources as they are. My main focus is to give you all of the information you will need to teach a subject, with as little fuss as possible.

Engineering Drawing resource

Engineering Drawing resource

(1)
Resource for engineering or technical drawing. Includes large (124 slide) PPT file with lots of activities and information, and worksheets that follow some of the presentations activities. When I use this resource I hide the slides that I don't need and only use the parts that I want to use for a given lesson. Please feel free to chop, change and cut anything in the resource (you will notice that it isn't in widescreen but if you copy the slides you want into a newer version of PPT it should still look good)
Engineering Drawing introductory activities

Engineering Drawing introductory activities

(0)
Basic, low level activities designed to give students confidence in reading and producing their own drawings in engineering. Starter activity is for students to identify the correct views. Drawing activities are for the students to convert isometric to orthographic projection, using guide lines - (you may need to adjust the contrast of your printer before printing, I had a small issue but it was fixed with a bit of adjustment) Feel free to chop, change and paste whatever you like to suit your own style.
Measurement Bundle

Measurement Bundle

4 Resources
A great way to introduce students to engineering measurement, tolerances and limits and fits. A great way for a cover teacher to easily teach with little notice - simply base some activities from the content in the packages. Can be easily repurposed to suit a wide range of teaching areas.
Health and Safety - Risk Assessment
stevegowansstevegowans

Health and Safety - Risk Assessment

(0)
PPT and activity sheets that enable students to carry out their very own risk assessments in the school/college. I use these to meet the requirements for risk assessment in pretty much any subjects risk assessment criteria (mainly BTEC engineering and C&G courses). They can be used across any level, the activity sheets are a simplified version of an engineering companies risk assessment. There are freely available templates to use on the HSE website, but these are very generalised and much too complex for teaching. Also, YouTube includes many videos that can be used (with the correct licence) to support the teaching further. Please feel free to cut, paste and chop any part of these resources however you see fit.
BTEC Level 1/2 - Unit 1 - The Engineered World Revision Booklet

BTEC Level 1/2 - Unit 1 - The Engineered World Revision Booklet

(0)
Booklet that covers a wide range of the specification for the BTEC unit 1 - The Engineered World. All activities are fully answered already - before issuing to students you might want to spend bit of time deleting the answers to produce a student copy. I have done it this way to give you freedom of choice as to the information you leave in the book. Feel free to chop and change any of the activities that you wish to deliver as individual activities.
Solidedge/Engineering drawing worksheet
stevegowansstevegowans

Solidedge/Engineering drawing worksheet

(1)
A formative assessment worksheet featuring a range of isometric and orthographic projections that start simple and work up to complex. I produced this for a formative assessment during Solidedge teaching, in order to assess the progress of my whole cohort. I used a cloud based folder system for each student for me to assess the work. It could be easily be used for manual Technical drawing classes. Feel free to cut, paste and use any drawings, or sketches for other purposes.
Technical drawing and CAD resources

Technical drawing and CAD resources

7 Resources
Technical drawing resources designed to save some £££. Useful for cover teachers needing resources for an unfamiliar subject. Can be used for the level 3 BTEC in engineering (unit 16) as it will meet most criteria. Please feel free to use resources however you wish and benefit from the excellent activities. See individual packs for more details on activities and sessions.
Measurement Tolerances

Measurement Tolerances

(0)
A powerpoint presentation that shows how measurements are tolerance in engineering, technology and design. A few questions are included in the slides but more can be easily made by using the examples as a template. Used at the start of engineering measuring activities or before you introduce students to a practical activities in an engineering or design environment. Feel free to cut, chop and paste any of the slides as you see fit for your own purposes.

Turning Handout

(0)
An old turning assessment activity designed to be used with the old NVQ courses. I still use this when introducing students to the lathe as it helps them to think about the functions and risks.

Health and safety - Manual handling
stevegowansstevegowans

Health and safety - Manual handling

(0)
PPT presentation about manual handling methods focused towards engineering activities. There are no additional files as the ones I used are freely available on the HSE website, though there are several single/group work activities that can inspire students to put thought into what they are doing. Used to teach students in preparation for the City & Guilds level 3 in engineering externally assessed exam, with excellent results in previous years. Though it has been made with engineering students in mind, the nature of the subject make it ideal for pretty much any subject. As with all other health and Safety subjects, don't forget to check out the HSE website - that place really has helped me to teach health and safety over the years. Please feel free to copy, paste and chop down any part of the resource you want.
