Students getting stuck in
Where possible we will provide a link to a print or paper company for your teacher to organise a visit. This can be invaluable in providing you with an insight into the print and paper industries and may even lead to work experience opportunities.

All work should be recorded in or attached (securely) to your Student Work Book. Work may be word processed, hand written, with hand drawn designs or Computer-Aided Design (CAD) drawings and photographs of models/prototypes. If you wish to submit 3D models (not a requirement), please ensure they are packaged appropriately to avoid damage. The cover sheet on the front of the Student Work Book and student survey (parts 1 and 2), must be completed.
The work should be submitted to your teacher using the simple cover sheet on the front of the Student Work Book. The teacher should then select entries that are suitable to be submitted to Proskills for final judging by *30 March 2014*
