Industry and education working together. Ensuring the work of the Design and Technology Association addresses all relevant issues arising between education in industry.
Vital in ensuring local, high quality support, training and advice to members and schools. Their knowledge and expertise ensures that the information and advice to members is completely up to date, accurate and relevant.
We work with businesses of all types within the D&T sector, who contribute to schools and help teachers and pupils with their understanding of what is required in a commercial and technologically developing world.
The Skills for Industry programme has been designed to link schools with an industry partner in order to help design and technology teachers to develop industry-relevant knowledge and skills which they can pass onto their students during and beyond the project.
Our sponsors are important to us and we work together to mutual benefit. Sponsors support a range of D&T Association activities or products, such as our conferences, branch network activities, Excellence Awards scheme and new exciting resources.
Design Education International is the global brand of the D&T Association. Founded over 20 years ago as the Design & Technology Association, we are recognised as the UK leader in the field of design and technology education.
