  • WT5912 Construction Studies Chief Examiners Report: It is recommended that teachers:  ensure that a balanced time provision is made available for all three components of the course – practical, written, and coursework  encourage students to plan their work in advance and to devise a coursework management log or Gantt chart to help them set targets and thus help optimise the use of time spend on coursework  encourage students to explore a wide variety of topics and themes before deciding on a particular coursework type  direct students’ attention to the rich architectural heritage of this country and encourage them to explore the architectural and craft heritage of their local area so as to provide stimulus for a diverse range of coursework  encourage students to develop the range of investigative and research skills  advise students to develop the portfolio in tandem with the development of the artefact Department of Design & Manufacturing Technology
  • WT5912 Construction Studies  Chief Examiners Report:  encourage students to keep a dedicated sketchpad to help develop sketching skills  advise students to record in the portfolio the sources of all information, especially information sourced from the Internet  display the relevant posters relating to coursework in the Construction Studies room and bring to the attention of all candidates the regulations contained in the relevant circulars and posters  ensure that all students complete and sign the necessary documentation prior to leaving school  display coursework in an attractive manner. Coursework work should be arranged in ascending numerical order and no other coursework should be displayed in the Centre.  encourage students to keep a sketchpad from the beginning of the course and to continually make sketches of buildings and architectural detailing as a method of recording and of practising sketching techniques over the duration of the course  not permit candidates remove the coursework from the school to facilitate additional work - as the teacher cannot then authenticate coursework completed in an out-of-school setting.
