Through our practical Level 1/2 Technical Award in Materials Technology, young learners will have 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.
