Syllabuses for Examinations inIndustrial Technology Programmes RATIONALEThe economic development and competitive edge of the region are inextricably linked to theapplication of technology in the manufacture and utilisation of goods and services. Theseconsiderations make it an imperative for the region to understand, develop and effectively applycompetencies that directly impact the quality of our lives. The Industrial Technology syllabuses is aqualitative response by the Caribbean Examinations Council to the Technical and Vocational Educationand Training (TVET) needs which are relevant to manufacturing and industrialisation in the CaribbeanRegion. The cognitive, psychomotor and affective outcomes aimed for in the syllabuses are geared atequipping students with a solid technical foundation for life-long learning and to enable the studentsto matriculate seamlessly into entry level occupations in a wide variety of careers and post-secondaryinstitutions. Candidates may pursue career paths to include some of the professions in Engineering(Robotics, Fabrication and Civil), Designing (Spatial and Structural), and Education.The changing nature of work and higher level skills requirements globally create a need for agreedregional standards in Competency Based Education Training and Assessment (CBETA). CBETA aroseout of the need to improve occupational standards to meet the needs of industrial and economicchanges. The School-Based Assessment (SBA) component of the Industrial Technology Syllabus willemploy the principles of CBETA, through the integration of the Caribbean Vocational Qualification(CVQ) into the SBA. This integration is aimed at making knowledge, skills and attitudes more practical.A solid educational background (academic and technical) will be achieved through practical andproject-based learning, designing and entrepreneurial processes. In this new approach, the CSECtechnical subjects will facilitate the successful completion of relevant Level 1 CVQ Units of Competence.Candidates who successfully complete the CSEC examinations in the Industrial Technology will beawarded; the CSEC Technical Proficiency Certificate and where applicable recognition of competenciesfor the aligned CVQ Units.The broad-range of interdisciplinary competencies aimed for in the Industrial Technology syllabuseswill contribute to the development of the attributes of the Ideal Caribbean Person, as documented inthe 2000 Caribbean Education Strategy. This person is one who is emotionally secure with a high levelof self-confidence and self-esteem; is aware of the importance of living in harmony with theenvironment; demonstrates multiple literacies, independence and critical thinking; values and displaysthe creative imagination in its various manifestations and nurtures its development in the economicand entrepreneurial spheres in all areas of life.In addition to the attributes listed above, the syllabuses will contribute to the development of all theUNESCO Pillars of Learning. These are learning to know, learning to do, learning to be, learning to livetogether and learning to transform oneself and society.CXC 13/T/SYLL 151

AIMSThe syllabuses aim to:1.acquire knowledge of both traditional and new materials, systems, and processes related toindustry;2.provide the students with an opportunity to understand the interrelationships amongtechnologies, equipment, processes, materials and systems related to industry;3.develop competencies in the application of manufacturing standards, processes, equipment,materials and tools for entry level employment (government, private sector and self) and lifelong learning;4.develop competencies through the processes of design management and communication,production and evaluation associated with construction and the manufacturing industries;and,5.develop innovative and creative minds equipped for our knowledge and technology drivensociety. ORGANISATION OF THE SYLLABUSESThe Industrial Technology Syllabuses comprise one Compulsory Core and three Options, organised insections.THE COREThe Core provides a flexible foundation for more detailed study aimed for in the three options. It is acombination of knowledge, skills and attitudes, pivotal to the programmes of study in IndustrialTechnology. The Core is, therefore, mandatory for all students. Teachers are required to integrate thecompetencies and processes in the Core with those of the respective Options. The Core is made up ofthe following Sections.Section 1:Section 2:Section 3:Fundamentals of Industry.Design Principles and Processes.Information Communication and Graphic Technologies.OPTIONSEach Option provides the foundation competencies relevant to industrial transformation anddevelopment in the Caribbean. The Options are listed below.Option A:Option B:Option C:Electrical and Electronic Technology.Mechanical Engineering Technology.Building and Furniture Technology.Candidates will complete the Core and at least one Option for certification. Institutions may also entercandidates for more than one Option. In this case, candidates will only be assessed once in the Core.2CXC 13/T/SYLL 15

SUGGESTED TEACHING AND LEARNING APPROACHESTo facilitate students’ attainment of the objectives, teachers/facilitators are encouraged to engagestudents in the teaching and learning activities listed below.1.Utilise resource persons from industry, subject specialists and practitioners to make presentationsand perform demonstrations for students.2.Establish partnerships with industries, other institutions and National Training Agencies tobenefit from their expertise and resources (institutional and industry).3.Demonstrate essential concepts using experiments, prototypes and instruments. Make use ofvideo presentations where applicable and Internet-based simulations.4.Utilise internal staff to assist students through team teaching.5.Encourage team-based research, presentation and assessment.6.Encourage students’ participation in the development of the Quality Control Standards; thisactivity is a partnership between the teachers and the students. Teachers and students are,therefore, encouraged to determine the key components of quality and ensure that set standardsare maintained.7.Arrange for the exposure of students to the world of work through job placement, workexperience, job shadowing and apprenticeship. This will ensure that students keep abreast withcurrent industrial processes and resources. SUGGESTED TIMETABLE ALLOCATIONIt is recommended that a minimum of six 40-minute periods per week, over two academic years orthe equivalent be allocated to the syllabus. Single periods are not recommended.ALLIED SUBJECTSStudents should be encouraged to include the following subjects in their programme of study: EnglishA, Information Technology, Environmental Science, Mathematics, Technical Drawing, Physics orChemistry. CERTIFICATIONThis syllabus will be assessed for the awards of both the Technical Proficiency and where applicablefor recognition of CVQ competencies. Candidates will complete the Core and at least one Option forcertification. Institutions may also enter candidates for more than one Option. In this case, candidateswill only be assessed once in the Core. Candidate’s performance will be indicated on the certificate byan overall numerical grade on a six-point scale as well as a letter grade for each of three profiledimensions, namely, Knowledge and Comprehension, Use of Knowledge and Practical Ability.3CXC 13/T/SYLL 15

The School-Based Assessment component for this syllabus is aligned to selected units within theregional qualification of the Caribbean Vocational Qualification (CVQ). Through this integration, onceall requirements for issuing the CVQ are met, every student with acceptable grades will receive aStatement of Competence to recognise their competencies in selected units (as detailed in Appendix 1)from the Level 1 Caribbean Vocational Qualification (CVQ) in:-General Construction (CCBCG10102);Furniture Making (CCLMF10103);Electrical Installation (CCMEM11002); or,Metal Work Engineering (CCMEM10302).The decisions to award competencies will be based on the quality and relevance of the pieces ofevidence presented for the occupational area. DEFINITION OF PROFILE DIMENSIONSIn the examinations, items and questions will be classified according to the kinds of cognitive, affectiveand psychomotor competencies outlined in the following profile dimensions:(a)Knowledge and Comprehension;(b)Use of Knowledge; and,(c)Practical Ability.Knowledge and Comprehension (KC)KnowledgeThe ability to identify, remember, and
