Design and Technology

The Design and Technology department are delighted with the outstanding products produced by our learners across the whole range of material areas. As part of our programme of study all learners will undertake a series of Focused Practical Activities, ‘Design and Make’ assignments and theory based exercises to develop knowledge and understanding within each of the material areas. These activities are tailored to build skills in designing and making using a variety of contexts within the various material areas.

Our aim is to encourage independent learners with an enjoyment for the subject.
