This is the first book in a series covering the mandatory and optional units of the NVQ Engineering Manufacture (Foundation) scheme. It provides comprehensive coverage of the mandatory units of the NVQ at level 2, using a highly practical workbook approach for use in college and at work. The interactive nature of the activities means that the workbook can be used as part of the portfolio of evidence that students/trainees need to show that they have satisfied the requirements of the specifications. The book: provides a set of tasks for the student/trainee to work through; conforms to EnTra's specifications and provides complete coverage of mandatory units; provides basic underpinning knowledge; can be used in a portfolio of evidence; provides a ready-made integrated scheme for training establishments; and has an accompanying tutor's guide. Coverage includes: general health and safety; basic engineering drawings, measuring and marking out; basic engineering materials; handling engineering information; and establishing effective working relationships.
