This year we were delighted to welcome 25 winners and their guests to the presentation dinner for the 17th D&T Association Excellence Awards, held at IET London, 2 Savoy Place, London WC2R 0BL on Friday 24th March 2017. Over 130 guests enjoyed the presentation evening, hosted by Angela Lamont. The awards gave professional recognition to individuals nominated by their colleagues for their unique work in design and technology education across the categories.
