Students will learn how to take design risks, helping them to become resourceful, innovative and enterprising citizens. They will develop an awareness of practices from the creative, engineering and manufacturing industries. Through the critique of the outcomes of design and technology activity, both historic and present day, students will develop an understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world and understand that high-quality design and technology is important to the global community.
The study of design and technology seeks to prepare students to participate confidently and successfully in an increasingly world. GCSE design and technology specifications enables students to work creatively when designing, and apply technical and practical expertise.
The new GCSEs in design and technology will not be tiered. 50% of total marks will be allocated to exams, and 50% to non-exam assessment.
This course is worth a full GCSE with a grade from J-9. Grade 9 being the top grade.
Practical skills are assessed through one controlled assessment which takes place throughout the year. The exam at the end of the course will assess their theory and design skills. It is essential students attend all lessons to take part in these parts of the course.
