Offer extended! - Secondary Department Partnership
Secondary Department Partnership, new name for secondary departmental membership. But it just got so much better!
The challenges faced by D&T departments nationally have been immense over the course of the last eighteen months with almost every teacher experiencing a significantly increased workload as they manage the demands imposed by COVID-19 alongside teacher assessments, NEA, and ongoing curriculum development; all this within the context of recruitment to our subject failing to match demand creating an acute shortage of subject trained teachers and leaders.
To address some of these issues we have reviewed and realigned our membership offer.
For a limited period, as a trial, we are reducing the cost of purchasing our Secondary Department Partnership (previously secondary departmental membership). Also our current departmental members can purchase an additional 12-months of membership for only £195.00.
Listening to members needs we have produced a partnership package that includes all the original member benefits and a whole lot more:
How to ... show the value of design and technology on the secondary curriculum
How ... D&T uses and applies learning gained elsewhere on the curriculum and what a high-quality How ... D&T education offers back to other curriculum areas
How ... D&T provides context to prepare and engage the workforce of the future
PowerPoint Slide deck to ‘sell’ the subject through assemblies
How to … sell D&T to the whole school
How to … sell the value of the subject to students (option day and wider) and how to win over parents.
How to … encourage SMT to provide access to subject based CPD
How to … encourage SMT to carry out required H&S training and remain compliant
Our main objective as your membership organisation, is to ensure the unique nature of D&T is maintained and valued.
Our secondary department partnership membership is generally paid for by the school and allows multiple members of your department access to member benefits. Some schools pay for it with their Pupil Premium fund. D&T is a compulsory subject for all Local Authority Schools in England teaching the National Curriculum
