Evaluation of Previous Course
Are the course and course framework still consistent?
This course has been redeveloped inline with the new MEM05 Metal and Engineering
Training Package and the new Industrial Technology Trades 2005 Course
Framework.

Were the goals achieved?
The goals of the course were achieved in that they met the requirements of students
and gave a very thorough introduction to the metals industry. The students left the
course with a different and more enlightened view of the metals industry.

Was the course content appropriate?
Yes, according to the various types of students, those with an interest in metals and
those seeking further training and employment in the metals industry. For most of the
students they found it both challenging and rewarding. They felt they had achieved
something worthwhile at the end of the course.

How successful were the teaching strategies?
The wide range of strategies available in the course gave teachers opportunities to
tailor different units to meet student needs. This was one of the strengths of this
course.

How appropriate was the assessment program?
The range of assessment instruments enabled teachers to tailor the assessment to the
needs of the group, and units within the course. The result was a reliable indication of
student ability and knowledge across all colleges.

Board Endorsed December 07-11

Were the needs of all students met?
Most students’ needs were met, due to the diversity of the course and the variety of
assessment items

Was the course relevant?
This course is highly relevant for students with lower literacy and numeracy skills as
the approach taken ties the practical and theoretical knowledge together. This enables
students to link the application with the underlying principles. The students with
stronger academic skills often do this course as an interest, and due to the breadth of
the course, find it challenging and rewarding.

 Implementation Guidelines
 Compulsory units
 Student must undertake the unit of competency MEM13.14A Apply principles of
 occupational health and safety in the work environment.

 Prerequisites for the course or units within the course
 There are no prerequisites.

 Arrangements for students who are continuing to study a course in this subject
 Teachers delivering this VET course will need to map individual Year 12 students
 from the old to the new training package MEM05 Metals and Engineering. This may
 involve a RPL process where units of competency have changed significantly from
 the previous training package.

 Units from other courses
 There are no units from other courses that have been considered for this course.

 Negotiated Units
 There are no negotiated units in this course.

 Relationship with other courses
 This course has similar content and leads to the same national qualifications as
 programs run by the Canberra Institute of Technology.

 Suggested Implementation Patterns
Students are required to take either Introduction to the Metals Industry or
Introduction to the Metals Industry a before taking other units. There are no other
compulsory units or requirements.

The compulsory units outlined ensure that all students undertaking an A minor course
will achieve the goals of the course.

 Subject Rationale
This course is intended to meet the needs of students who
have a general interest in the metals and engineering
industry trades/technology as well as those intending to
choose a career pathway into the traditional trades and
related service industries.

Australia is currently experiencing a skills shortage in traditional trade areas. There is
also an increasing demand in Australia and elsewhere for people able to assume highly



                                                                                         12
 Board Endorsed December 07-11

skilled roles in areas deploying rapidly developing technologies. There is a need for
more highly trained new workers and up-skilling of existing workers in the
manufacturing and service industries as the levels of newer technologies are increased.
For example, there are vastly more complex electronics to be fitted and serviced in the
automotive industry and new materials and techniques in the building industry.
Everybody is affected to some degree by the need to understand and effectively use
advancing technology in the workshop, the construction site, the factory, office, home
or farm.

The range of skills and knowledge in the manufacturing and service industries has
increased and will continue to increase. Because new technologies are constantly
replacing recent ones, there is a great need for people involved at any level in the
production or use of them to be adaptable. They need to be able to acquire
knowledge quickly and to develop and apply new skills effectively. It is also
important to maintain traditional skills and attitudes used in older technologies where
they underpin and support the newer technologies.

There is an increasing tendency for workers to have several career changes during their
lifetime and there are pressures on people to extend their working lives. These changes
require retraining that may be funded by industry, but is very often the responsibility of
the individual. It is therefore vital for people to have an education that includes
Industrial Technology at the senior secondary level. This will provide them with the
best possible base for lifelong learning and for pursuing relevant career choices.

Goals
This course should enable students to:
 understand the concepts, techniques, terminology and content appropriate to metals
 fabrication
 demonstrate practical skills and safe workshop habits when making or repairing
 products
 relate basic mathematical and scientific principles to practical applications related to
 metals fabrication
 demonstrate problem solving ability, incorporating evaluation techniques and skills
 communicate clearly in written and oral form
 demonstrate employment-related skills in working independently and cooperatively
 and in making informed decisions about career paths related to metal and engineering
 industries.

Industry Need
At the time of writing this course, there is a dire shortage of qualified people in this
area. ACT Vocational Education and Training Half Yearly Profile July 2005.

Recognition of Prior Learning
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) should be granted to students on the basis of
Units of Competence by testing against each of the associated Assessment Criteria.
RPL should only be granted for Units of Competence.




                                                                                           13
 Board Endorsed December 07-11

A student having been granted RPL for one or more units of competence is still
required to fulfill the time-based component of units, in order to be eligible for an A-E
grade.
To cater for this requirement, curriculum deliverers should design the presentation of
the units to be flexible enough to accommodate students who have gained some
competencies from RPL.

Credit Transfer
 CIT staff have provided information to the developer on their courses in the area and
 confirmed that this course will give students credit transfer into their metals courses.

 Student Group
 This course is aimed at students who:
 Are seeking a career in the Metals and Engineering Industry
 Wish to enhance and develop a range of practical skills for life
 Wish to undertake a course in which they can gain recognition of prior learning or
 credit transfer when entering appropriately related post school education and/or
 training; and/or require a foundation of skills and knowledge that can be built on as
 the need arises

 Content
 The essential skills of Metals and Engineering are:
 manipulative and physical skills relating to the metals and engineering industry
 communication skills (listening and understanding, reading independently, sharing
 information, using numeracy)
 teamwork (sharing/defining roles and responsibilities, recognising and responding to
 individuals strengths/weaknesses)
 problem-solving (developing practical solutions according to the situation)
 self management (taking responsibility, evaluating and monitoring own performance),
 planning and organising (managing time and priorities, decision making and
 initiative)
 healthy and safe behaviour in workshop practice.

 Teaching and Learning Strategies
 Teaching strategies that are particularly relevant and
 effective in metals and engineering include:
 hands-on experiences and demonstrations
 work placements, workplace visits, fieldwork and observation of professional
 establishments
 establishing links with individuals or groups relevant to the industry
 instructing students in appropriate relevant and effective professional conduct and
 knowledge acquisition
 student reflection on the relevant skills
 practice and reinforcement of learning by way of revision, worksheets, tests, and
 demonstrations
 use of information and communication technologies
 class discussions, oral presentations and group work.



                                                                                         14
Board Endorsed December 07-11

Strategies should help students:
gain confidence through building new learning on what they already know and can do
connect their personal worlds with their experiences at school, in the community and
in workplaces
understand their own strengths and weaknesses and how they learn most effectively
take responsibility through planning and action
develop practical skills through community and work-related experiences
increase their competence in the application of technologies
work effectively with others.
work safely in different situations.

Assessment
Competency Based Assessment
The assessment of competence needs to have as its primary focus the competencies
upon which the course is based. These are described in the Training Package.
Assessors need to develop an assessment strategy where the different assessment
items will enable them to obtain sufficient evidence to judge that the students have
attained the competency. This evidence must be gathered over a number of
assessment items. Competence does not mean being able to demonstrate once or
twice.
The most appropriate method for assessing workplace competency is through
demonstration and observation in the workplace, under normal working conditions
and with the assistance of tools, equipment, job aids and work colleagues that would
normally be available in the workplace. Where this is not available, a simulated
workplace will be used. The following general principles and strategies apply:
        assessment is competency based
        assessment is criterion-referenced
This course has been designed for:
        flexible delivery modes such as combined structured workplace learning or
        simulated workplace; and for
        assessment of learners against workplace competencies in the college.
Quality outcomes can only be assured through the assessment process. The strategy
for assessment is based on an integration of the workplace competencies into an
holistic activity. The awarding of vocational qualifications is dependent on successful
demonstration of the learning outcomes through Integrated Competency Assessment.
The integrated assessment activity will require the learner to:
          use the appropriate key competencies,
          apply the skills and knowledge which underpin the process required to
          demonstrate competency in the workplace,
          integrate the most critical aspects of the competencies for which workplace
          competency must be demonstrated, and
          it will also provide evidence for grades and or scores for the Board course
          component of the assessment process in AV or TV courses.

Assessment Tasks and Assessment Criteria
Assessment Tasks
In order to provide a common basis for moderation across colleges, assessment tasks
are designed to address the assessment criteria in the Course Framework. Assessment
tasks elicit the degree to which students have achieved the assessment criteria and
therefore the goals of a course and the units within it.

Task Types          Practical              Written Work           Workplace
                    Application                                   Processes

                                                                  Set workplace
                                                                  exercises

Weighting                50-70%                 15-30%                  15-30%

The ACT Board of Senior Secondary Studies recommends 4-6 summative assessment
tasks across a full semester unit and 2- 3 assessment tasks for a 0.5 unit. These should
not be a compilation of a number of small discrete tasks (eg mini-tests) as these
detract from assessing depth of knowledge and skill.

Assessment Criteria
Students will be assessed on the degree to which they demonstrate:
industry specific skills
understanding, use and communication of industrial knowledge
understanding and use of Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) procedures
self-management, teamwork and communication in workshop practice.

Student Capabilities
Creative and Critical Thinkers
Students will be encouraged to think creatively and critically in solving higher level
conceptual problems in assessment items, e.g. through work on assessment of
processes and procedures as they should be applied in different circumstances.

Enterprising Problem-solvers
Students will be given opportunities to develop problem-solving skills through
extension activities in practical work.

Skilled and Empathetic Communicators
Students will be required to understand technical information and communicate using
technical jargon relevant to the metals industry as appropriate. They will also have
opportunities to communicate with other members of a team.


                                                                                         16
Board Endorsed December 07-11

Informed and Ethical Decision-makers
Students will be encouraged to make decisions after discussion and research into
topics such as heavy metal fumes when welding, waste water disposal and treatment
form metals processes, etc.

Environmentally and Culturally Aware Citizens
Students will be encouraged to be aware of environmental issues such as pollutants,
disposal of oils and other chemicals, emissions, recycling, etc, and environmental
topics will be discussed in class.

Confident and Capable Users of Technologies
Students will be exposed to technologies through work with computers in class and
with machinery in the workshop. They will also be required to use computers for
research and assignments.

Independent and Self-managing Learners
Self direction will be promoted to students, and opportunities will be provided for
students to research topics of their own interest in the Metals Engineering field.

Collaborative Team Members
Teamwork and sharing of resources will be encouraged, and students will be required

       Moderation
       Moderation is a system designed and implemented to:
       provide comparability in the system of school-based assessment
       form the basis for valid and reliable assessment in senior secondary schools
       involve the ACT Board of Senior Secondary Studies and colleges in cooperation and
       partnership and
       maintain the quality of school-based assessment and the credibility, validity and
       acceptability of Board certificates.
       Moderation commences within individual colleges. Teachers develop assessment
       programs and instruments, apply assessment criteria, and allocate Unit Grades,
       according to the relevant Course Framework. Teachers within course teaching groups
       conduct consensus discussions to moderate marking or grading of individual
       assessment instruments and unit grade decisions.

       The Moderation Model
       Moderation within the ACT encompasses structured, consensus-based peer review of
       Unit Grades for all accredited courses.

       Moderation by Structured, Consensus-based Peer Review
       Review is a subcategory of moderation, comprising the review of standards and the
       validation of Unit Grades. In the review process, Unit Grades, determined for Year
       11 and Year 12 student assessment portfolios that have been assessed in schools by
       teachers under accredited courses, are moderated by peer review against system wide
       criteria and standards. This is done by matching student performance with the criteria
       and standards outlined in the Unit Grade Descriptors as stated in the Course
       Framework. Advice is then given to colleges to assist teachers with, and/or reassure
       them on their judgments.

       Preparation for Structured, Consensus-based Peer Review
       Each year, teachers teaching a Year 11 class are asked to retain originals or copies of
       student work completed in Semester 2. Similarly, teachers teaching a Year 12 class
       should retain originals or copies of student work completed in Semester 1. Colleges
       not on a semester structure will negotiate with BSSS on work required. Assessment
       and other documentation required by the Office of the BSSS should also be kept.
       Year 11 work from Semester 2 of the previous year is presented for review at
       Moderation Day 1 in March, and Year 12 work from Semester 1 is presented for
       review at Moderation Day 2 in August.




                                                                                             19
Board Endorsed December 07-11

In the lead up to Moderation Day, a College Course Presentation (comprised of a
document folder and a set of student portfolios) is prepared for each A and T course
and any M units offered by the school, and are sent in to the Office of the BSSS.

The College Course Presentation
The package of materials (College Course Presentation) presented by a college for
review on moderation days in each course area will comprise the following:
a folder containing supporting documentation as requested by the Office of the BSSS
through memoranda to colleges
a set of student portfolios containing marked and/or graded written and non-written
assessment responses and completed criteria and standards feedback forms. Evidence
of all assessment responses on which the unit grade decision has been made is to be
included in the student review portfolios.
Specific requirements for subject areas and types of evidence to be presented for each
moderation day, which will be outlined by the Office of the BSSS through
memoranda and Information Papers.

Proposed Evaluation Procedures
Course evaluation will be a continuous process. Teachers will meet regularly to
discuss the content of the course and any requirements for modification of activities,
teaching strategies and assessment instruments. The current trends and innovations in
the teaching of Metals and Engineering Industry will be considered as teachers attend
workshops, seminars and participate in discussion groups with other teachers such as
on Moderation Day.
Teachers will monitor student performance and progress and student responses to
various teaching, learning and assessment strategies. Students and teachers will
complete evaluation questionnaires at the end of each unit. The results of these will
be collated and reviewed from year to year. There will also be a continuous
monitoring of student numbers between Years 11 and 12.
Informal discussions between teachers and students, past students, parents and other
teachers will contribute to the evaluation of the course.
In the process of evaluation; students, teachers and others should, as appropriate,
consider:
     Are the course and Course Framework still consistent?
     Were the goals achieved?
     Was the course content appropriate?
     Were the teaching strategies used successful?
     Was the assessment program appropriate?
     Have the needs of the students been met?
     Was the course relevant?
     How many students completed the course in each of the years of
        accreditation?
