Design & Tech (inc. Food)

Design and Technology combines practical and technological skills with creative thinking to design and make products, foods and systems that meet human needs. Students learn to use current technologies and consider the impact of future technological developments and are encouraged to think creatively and intervene to improve the quality of life, solving problems as individuals and members of a team.

Working in stimulating contexts that provide a range of opportunities for exploration and problem solving, students are expected to respond with ideas, products and systems and are asked to challenge expectations where appropriate. They will need to combine practical and intellectual skills with an understanding of aesthetic, technical, cultural, health, social, emotional, economic, industrial and environmental issues.

The programme is designed to develop students’ confidence in using practical skills and help them to become discriminating users of products.

The Department makes extensive use of ICT at all levels and in all material areas. The use of Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Manufacturing (CAM) is developing rapidly, while the use of computer control and graphical design software is well established.

Students in Year 7 and 8 will study 12 units across the two-year programme.

Note to parents/carers – All DT courses require students to pay for the materials/ingredients required to complete the course and examinations. Please contact the school if you have any concerns about this financial commitment.
