Curriculum and Learning
All learners will follow a curriculum which is split between the core/foundation subjects and a strong technical curriculum. The split between the two will be 60:40.
The curriculum will be based around employer led commissions. These will be developed and delivered by our employer partners to reflect challenges that employers face on a day to day basis. All subjects students study will be taught though these commissions to contextualise their learning and to reinforce skills and knowledge through practical real world application
A key feature of the curriculum for all students, following consultation with employers, will be the development of employability skills:
- Problem solving
- Communication Skills
Employer Engagement across DMUTC—2017/2018
Year 10 - Toyota
During year 10 engineering students will be working with Toyota . This will be to help with the
delivery of Engineering Manufacture units R110, R11 and R112. The main points of the work will be to look at different manufacturing techniques and Quality Assurance. Students will manufacture a Fuel Rail Spacer both manually and CNC and will then make comparisons regarding production methods, quality of final product etc..This engagement will run throughout the year.
Year 11 - Rolls-Royce
During year 11 engineering students will be working with Rolls-Royce. This will be to help with the delivery of Engineering Design units R106, R107 and R108. The main points of the work will be to look at HOW products are designed and the consideration's that go into developing a product in the future. Students will look at developing and prototyping a Heat Exchanger. This engagement will run throughout the year.
Year 11 - Bombardier
During year 11 engineering students will be working with Bombardier. This will be to help them with understanding to the 4 main stages of a design cycle. This work will also assist those students re-sitting unit R105. The main aim of the challenge is to re-design a train carriage to certain specifications given. This engagement will run from October—December.
Year 12 - Lubrizol
During year 12 engineering students will be working with Lubrizol. This will be to help them with Unit 1 relating to Health and Safety. The hope is that Lubrizol will provide some interactive
resources (discussed in visit during summer break) to help make this unit more realistic whilst also allowing some small specialised visits.
