National Teaching and Learning Change Programme

Produced by the Learning and Skills Improvement Service (LSIS), these resources are designed to provide interactive and engaging theory sessions in engineering. Some of the topics will also be useful for students studying physics at age 14-19.

The materials consist of approaches to teaching engineering topics, session plans and learner resources.

The topics covered include:
* Safety, working safely and reporting of incidents
* Risk assessments
* Distance-time and velocity-time graphs
* Rearranging equations
* Collisions and momentum
* Magnetic fields and electric motors
* Circuit symbols
* Compression ratios
* Electric current
* Moments
* Fire extinguishers

An Introduction to Circuit Symbols

Produced by the Learning and Skills Improvement Service, these materials introduce students to circuit symbols. They develop their knowledge and understanding of circuit symbols and components through a range of short, interactive learning activities. These are particularly useful to reinforce, or consolidate,...

Being Safe at Work

Produced by the Learning and Skills Improvement Service, this resource introduces students to Health and Safety Executive (HSE) statistics of workplace accidents in the manufacturing sector. The purpose is to draw attention to the scale of the problem in the students’ own industrial sector and to raise awareness...

Compression Ratios

From the Learning and Skills Improvement Service, these materials help students reinforce their existing knowledge and understanding of compression ratios. The activity helps with assessing students’ levels of confidence and competence and also with identifying any misconceptions that need addressing. The session...

Conservation of Linear Momentum: Collisions

Produced by the LSIS, this practical activity is designed to engage learners in discussion about momentum and to help them to predict the possible effects of a collision. You may choose to perform a demonstration, using a simple runway, ball bearings and magnets, and then ask pairs or groups of students to try it...
