Program Coordinator (Secondary) will approve entry into the ITD teaching area for students with past trade qualifications and experience.
Workplace Health and Safety (WH&S) is a key priority in all work spaces, even more so when teaching students in a high risk environment. This course is designed to consider the Industrial Technology and Design (ITD) guidelines and practices to keep both the pre-service teacher and their students safe. As well as providing a safe environment, ITD teachers need to be aware of the legal obligations they need to abide by as professionals.
This course is an entry level course for pre-service teachers wishing to become ITD teachers within secondary schooling. The purpose of this course is to ensure that pre-service teachers in ITD are equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to safely manage ITD specific work spaces and activities. This course is intended to ensure the pre-service teachers have a clear understanding of policies and procedures relating to ITD.
This course provides guidelines and practices which incorporate the concepts of risk management; machine licensing, the physical layout of a classroom, signage, barriers, test and tag, maintenance scheduling and safe storage of materials. The course will outline the processes to be followed within a school environment to keep all parties safe both physically and legally. Pre-service teachers will be shown how to access relevant documentation and hierarchies of control including documenting and communicating WH&S issues. Pre-service teachers are required to attend a school based workshop one morning or afternoon a week (whichever suits the school) during this semester.
On successful completion of this course students should be able to:
- Identify policies & procedures for a workshop environment
- Explain guidelines and practices relevant to teaching Technology and Design
- Identify documents relating to use and handling of materials and machinery
- Identify and apply process of Risk Management (including communication)
- Undertake a workshop safety audit (including reporting and documentation of issues arising)
- Demonstrate machine maintenance (including manuals and record keeping)
- Explain WH&S legal requirements
- Outline the role of a WHSO and relevance to Technology and Design workshops
