Launching Blueprint 1000

Connecting industry with education to build an inspiring, innovative and proficient workforce by supporting D&T education

What is Blueprint 1000?

The Design and Technology Association supports high quality design, engineering and technology education.

We are a membership organisation providing advice, support and training for those involved in teaching design, engineering and technology. We work closely with government, awarding bodies, Ofsted and other regulators, advising on the curriculum and lobbying on behalf of the subject. We also work with employers and corporate partners to help promote the value of the subject and the range of careers and opportunities to which it can lead. We specialise in developing links between education and industry to mutual benefit.

Design and technology pupils develop designing and making skills, learn about electronics, computing, engineering, CAD, CAM, robotics, materials and textiles technology. They also develop business critical skills in problem-solving, innovation and team-work.
