I'm in the same boat as you I think. My department is being pushed to introduce new courses to offer more choice to pupils. BTec eng. or construction seem to be the prefered options. We've had the admin and salesman chat from the exam board but it would be nice to be told the "ins and outs" of actually teaching it. What equipment or machinery is required? what is the course content? Where can we get specific training? Is it possible to visit schools who are teaching it and pick thier brains? This new GCSE RM spec and the 30 hour CAT is turning pupils off like light switches so we are looking for something to attract them back.
