Summary

This free unit covers a range of modern industrial and commercial practices in an engaging and inspiring way. Starting with the familiar scales of production, it builds in depth by introducing new techniques and methods seen in modern manufacturing.

What people say...

Your resources are the dream ticket in terms of their mapping and content feeding into KS4 courses. The resources are top notch with home works and mark schemes that can be compiled into a booklet or issued separately, top class outfit with excellent customer services.

Dave Hill. Design and Technology Teacher, St Patrick's Catholic College

I'd just like to express my thanks for the material and support. If I had needed to have made my own resources, the results wouldn't have been as good and now I'm happy to tailor and tweak the resources to fit my own teaching and the student's own skills.

Paul Sloane. Head of Computer Science, Lady Manners School
