Course Summary

The Design and Technology (D&T) is a key part of the curriculum and one of the most relevant subjects in our constantly developing world. The diverse nature of D&T means that you will be in a position to inspire your pupils to explore many cross-curricular educational pathways, giving them the opportunity to be creative, ethical designers of the future. You will develop a range of skills across all focus areas of Design and Technology, by being involved in projects working with textiles, wood, plastics and metal. Health and Safety training is also an important feature of the pathway as are safe working practices in workshops, kitchens or with machinery. Planning, organisational skills, problem-solving and collaboration are amongst the many skills pupils develop an excellent D & T teacher, and these are directly attributable to the world of work or higher education study. All assessments are closely linked to practice and are designed to offer you the opportunity to develop teaching and learning that has a positive impact on children and young people.

Many schools and college departments, both locally and nationally, are staffed with several of our teachers and many have gone on to forge successful teaching careers at strategic, professional and management levels at home and abroad. Our PGCE graduates usually remain in close touch with Yr Athrofa as they make their careers in the teaching profession and they often become subject mentors on the programme. This creates a very strong, sustainable professional network of teachers, which is a rich source of continuing professional development.
