About our curriculum direction

 
Manufacturing industries transform raw materials into products wanted by society and this focus of underpinning design practices and production processes is the aim of Industrial Technology offerings in Graphics, Furnishings, Building Construction, Engineering and Engineering Technologies across junior and senior levels. CHSHS ultimately remains focussed on maintaining the integration of practical elements in addition to the design focus in the Design Technologies Australian Curriculum.
 
Studies in Industrial Technology provides foundation skills for not only general life skills and employment, but also skills useful in University and TAFE courses of study. ITD offers subjects for OP, Non OP, and Certificate courses.
 
Beginning in Year 7, students are provided with a practical introduction to our subjects. Students who choose Junior Manufacturing are introduced to the theoretical background of Engineering and Furnishing, while developing their practical skills. Junior Graphics involves both paper and computer skills.

In the senior years, students may choose from Graphics, Furnishing, Engineering, and Construction. The aim is for students to be well prepared when taking on a trade after year 12. Growing trends and societal needs are reinforcing the practical skills that are learnt at Centenary Heights State High School in the ITD department. This faculty is almost entirely devoted to preparing students for the direct transition from school to employment. We are proud of our role in providing guidance and training for the tradespeople of the future.
 
As our society is changing so too does our Curriculum and 2020 is seeing current rewriting of our programs to align with developments of the Australian Curriculum and Queensland implementation of the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) process.
 
On behalf of staff in the Industrial Technology faculty, we look forward to assisting your young person with their academic development and experience.
 
Kindest regards
