Increasingly, we are being asked to provide consultant support, in-school, for all teachers delivering D&T in primary and secondary schools.
We are trialing a range of support packages, for members and non-members, that can offer a flexible and cost-effective alternative to scheduled CPD events and training days. These can be delivered in-school to effectively meet your school requirements. There is also the potential to develop bespoke packages to meet your highly individual needs.
Schools have many different requirements: CPD training their team, addressing arising challenges within their department, assessment of a department, implementing changes and new schemes of work, aligning teaching with the new D&T GCSE and ensuring their school is running a five-year D&T teaching plan coving KS3 and 4. Consider the D&T Association as yoru first port of call for any support and guidance required.

Hear from what some of our previous delegates have said from one of our sessions at the James Dyson Foundation:
"Really useful session - great to see a push to move the subject forward - Excellent focus of textiles in its broadest sense!"
"Really useful guidance and practical information to help me get started in September. Also a lot to think about for KS3"
"Extremely useful session - clarified my thinking on the new KS4 and informed me in the best way forward in KS3 & KS4. Thanks!"
Design and Technology (D&T) is the inspiring, rigorous and practical subject which prepares all young people to live and work in the designed and made world.
