L2MEC

Level 2 Mechanical Engineering

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms M. Green

What will I learn and how will I learn?
Mechanical engineers make things! They use a variety of materials and manufacturing processes to design and build machinery, products and other cool stuff. It’s mechanical engineers who make motorbikes, cars, tools, cell phone towers, aluminium boats, wrought iron products and so much more.

The Engineering Industry Training Organisation (Competenz), and the Motor Industry Training Organisation (MITO) both offer schools genuine industry unit standards at Level 2 and 3. This qualification prepares students for real jobs in the engineering industry by developing all kinds of relevant skills and knowledge. Students develop confidence using a variety of hand and machine tools, measuring and welding equipment. This empowers them to work more and more independently and with increasing skill. Students learn to communicate ideas through drawings and plans. This enables them to reproduce products to a high standard or to design and develop their own ideas and share them efficiently with others.

Students are taught safe practices in preparation for industry. Caring for our excellent facilities make students part of a long tradition of quality students who can be recommended by Kaitaia College staff to future employers. 

Level 2 students will be manufacturing an off-road pocket bike.

Authenticity
All students are expected to follow the policy outlined in the Kaitaia College NZQA Student Handbook.  Failure to comply will result in a "Not Achieved" grade for the affected assessment/s.

Conditions of Assessment All work must be submitted to the teacher by the due date. Any work not submitted for assessment by the deadline will receive a ‘Not Achieved’ grade. If students are sick on the day their work is due, they must get a doctor's certificate. Read over the student handbook for full assessment details.

Submitting Internal Assessment Assessments are to be handed in at the end of the lesson on the due date.

Resubmissions and Further Assessment Opportunities Resubmissions can only be offered once and only when small errors or omissions need to be corrected in their work in a short period of time. There is no further teaching available. Further assessment opportunities are not available in every standard.
