Our practical Level 1/2 Award in Materials Technology gives young learners the opportunity to develop skills in making high-quality products using woods, metal and polymers (plastics).
They will be expected to make a range of products, prototypes and samples, applying technical and practical expertise to ensure that the product is fit for purpose. Learners will have the opportunity to use traditional skills and modern technologies.
Although this qualification won’t be included in performance tables for 2019, we’re offering these Level 1/2 Awards to schools and colleges as we believe they are valuable qualifications for practical learners.
