AQA D&T GCSE Submission Update

Published 12th January 2017

On Wednesday 11th January 2017, the DfE updated its list of approved GCSE qualifications to include AQA’s GCSE D&T specifications for first teaching in September 2017. This is good news for the many schools who are waiting to see all the available options before they decide which to adopt. This just leaves the WJEC Eduqas' submission to be approved.

Schools are also waiting to hear about Technical Awards which have been developed to be delivered alongside GCSE D&T. These are still being scrutinised by Ofqual but it is hoped that they will be approved in the near future.
