Congratulations to all students who have received their results today – we recognise how much hard work has gone in to these achievements. Particular congratulations to those who have been successful in A Level Design and Technology.

A level Design and Technology is a rigorous subject which equips pupils with the ability to progress to further study or employment in areas like engineering, product design and textiles. We know that students with a D&T A level are more likely to pursue careers as engineers, architects, designers and many other opportunities across the creative and digital industries'

The subject offers young people a great opportunity to develop the high-tech skills and problem-solving abilities that business and industry needs. Design and Technology prepares young people for University and Apprenticeships, with many employers keen to recruit young people with good technical and problem-solving skills.

Lesley Morris, Chair of the Design and Technology Association said today:

"Congratulations to all those who have achieved such excellent results in their Design and Technology A Level today. Congratulations also to the hard-working teachers who have embraced the changes to the curriculum and continued to provide high-quality education for our young people. Their passion and commitment is what makes this subject so exciting and so well-loved by students across the country.

Design and Technology provides young people with a great route in to further study or employment. We work with lots of employers who are passionate about the subject and who value the skills it develops in young people, enhancing their technical abilities and improving their innovation and problem solving skills.”
