Course Summary

This route will equip you with the skills and experience to teach at GCSE and A/AS levels, also on vocational courses. You will specialize in one aspect of design and technology, Resistant Materials, Food or Textiles, depending on your degree subject and will be trained to teach a minor subject that you will be teaching to Key Stage 3. This course will provide you with a critical framework for understanding recent developments in the Design and Technology curriculum. Taking account of your particular academic strengths and specialism, you will be prepared to teach National Curriculum Design & Technology and be equipped with an understanding of GCSE, A/AS Levels and vocational courses. You will be supported in developing your subject knowledge through the use of a subject audit which identifies individual strengths and areas for development. Assignments and teaching experiences are designed to confirm your broad understanding of professional issues and confidence in your curriculum area. Design and Technology postgraduates have been very successful in securing first teaching posts in schools and colleges across the United Kingdom and further afield. Tutors in helping you to prepare letters of application and interview presentations provide full support.
