Creating the Teachers of the Future

Published 29th June 2018

With the number of teachers qualifying to teach design & technology anticipated to be the lowest number ever recorded, it is clear that this is an area where the Association needs to be active and seek to positively affect. We have gathered detailed information on the number of university-based placements offered and accepted in the last year and are attempting to work with partners to identify numbers qualifying through other means (fragmented information that is harder to track)!

We have one of the most exciting subjects on the curriculum and need to encourage potential teaching candidates to train in our subject area. By late September this year, we are hoping to release detail of a scheme working with a key partner to increase the number of teachers entering D&T teacher training in 2019.
