Vocational Tasters offer learners a concrete introduction to a range of employment sectors. Ideal for learners following an alternative progression route, these courses help learners to make progress towards their personal learning and career aims.
Increasing learners’ knowledge of different employment sectors will help them to make informed and long-lasting decisions about their post-16 destinations.
The Manufacturing Vocational Taster has been produced in collaboration with NAC Group, which engages young people in programmes to develop manufacturing and engineering skills, particularly for the automotive sector. The student book contains modules in: Understanding manufacturing, Product design, Manufacturing logistics, Making stuff, Health and safety, and Careers.
This course can be completed using the student book or is available for learners to complete online through the ASDAN e-portfolio system. Learners log in to complete challenges, record skills development and upload evidence. Tutors can view learner progress and sign off work, leaving feedback as needed.
