Design & Technology

AQA GCSE Design and Technology:

Design & Technology encourages students to think like a designer to tackle problems and develop solutions. Investigation of world problems and developing marketable products underpins the course.

Students develop a wide range of creative designing and making skills, technical knowledge and understanding.  Students pick up invaluable transferable skills such as problem-solving and time management, skills which employers look for.  Students are directed to work with confidence and self-direction, communicate ideas, and learn how to manufacture high quality solutions to problems.

This subject is very beneficial for students considering a design or practically oriented career. Design & Technology is useful as it develops confidence when working with drawings, tools and materials at any later stage of life.
