NCEA L3 Construction

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr J. McLean

This course builds upon the skills acquired at in CON2 in readiness for moving you to the next stage in your lives outside school; the Construction industry of today. You will be taking industry based standards that will hold you in good stead for getting an apprenticeship. 

Projects are designed around the skills that you need to acquire and the tools and machinery that you master.

Course Overview

Term 1
For this course, you are encouraged to search for your own project/s, within the limits drawn up by your teacher.
You will, by this stage be familiar with all aspects of the design process. Also, the importance of client feedback and the need to produce accurate and well constructed outcomes.
You will be guided as if you were an apprentice. Hence, your own decisions re materials and construction techniques will be up for discussion. It will be up to you to put your case to the teacher, justifying the decisions that need to be made as you go through the process of idea through to final outcome.

Term 2
Continuation from Term 1.

Term 3
Continuation from Term 2.

Term 4
Completing all projects and making sure that all associated standards have been completed.

Recommended Prior Learning

It would help if you have already completed CON2. However, if through timetable clashes you missed out on this choice last year, you can request an interview with either Mr. Ben Eustace or Mr. John McLean so that you can be considered, if appropriate.
