SMHS - Secondary Materials Health and Safety
The SMHS - Resistant Materials is a general course covering 12 areas which is suitable for teachers, technicians and support staff in need of basic training.
This course runs over 2 sessions and will cover the following topics. Each area will be separately accredited on the certificate.
A variety of practical projects will be undertaken to cover the practical requirements of the course.
Many delegates are new to D&T and ask for a source of basic guidance. I recommend the Ladybird books 'Learnabout Woodwork' and 'Learnabout Metalwork'. The earlier version was called 'How to do it.... same book. They are no longer in print but readily available on Amazon. In the days of CSE I used to have class sets of both, so check around you may have copies hidden away. I will have copies for you to look at the course.
