Overview

Mike Tooley's accessible activity-based approach introduces students to engineering and the pivotal role it plays in the modern world, as well as providing opportunities to develop engineering GCSE schemes from Edexcel and OCR.

The text, case studies, activities and review questions are designed to encourage students to explore engineering for themselves through a variety of different learning experiences. The practical process of designing and making a product offers the chance to develop the skills of engineering drawing, basic electronics and workshop techniques. Case studies, and research work using the internet and other sources introduce the wide variety of engineering sectors and employment, from the automotive industry to telecommunications.

This book builds on the success of Mike Tooley's GNVQ and BTEC National Engineering texts, which have helped thousands of students to gain their first engineering qualification.

This text is supported by a Curriculum Support Pack, which provides teachers and lecturers guidance on setting up and running a Vocational GCSE programme, as well as a wealth of photocopiable materials including worksheets, activity briefs and revision sheets.

Mike Tooley is Director of Learning Technology at Brooklands College, Surrey, and author of many engineering and electronics books.
