Practical Metalwork is a National 4/National 5 course available to students in the Senior Phase. It builds upon the practical skills students gain through the integrated Craft, Design and Technologies course in S1 and 2 as well as the Practical Skills option available to students in S3.
The course is internally assessed and consists of three units:
- Bench Skills
- Machine Processes
- Fabrication and Thermal Joining
At National 4 students will also complete an Added Value Unit: Making a Finished Product from Metal. At National 5 students must also produce a finished product in metal to a given standard.
Full course details and entry requirements are available in our Senior Phase Course Choice Booklet.
