What makes a great design and technology teacher? How can you effectively lead a department that covers such a broad range of topics? How can you encourage girls to excel in resistant materials and boys to try their hand at food technology? Answers to these and many more questions are what teachers attending our courses are looking for.
We recognise that some aspects of design and technology teaching and leadership are best addressed by considering the subject as a whole, whilst other issues require a more specialist approach. Our courses reflect this, so whilst you might wish to learn and exchange ideas about how to stretch more able students alongside colleagues with a range of design and technology specialisms, if you want to know how to help students up their grades in food technology GCSE or prepare your more practically minded resistant materials candidates to do well in the written exam we have the perfect course for you.
Whatever the specific topic of the course, the day will be led by someone with many years of classroom experience who will have a wealth of skills and knowledge you can draw on to build on your existing practice.
