The Design and Technology Association 2014-15 Annual Survey of Provision (Secondary)

Published 3rd December 2015

Have your say - please complete the National D&T Annual Survey of Provision

This survey contributes to the Design and Technology Association’s established process of collecting data from schools. The Design and Technology Association makes particular use of the findings in supporting the D&T community with their arguments and the claims it makes for increased provision in term of resources and support for the subject. It also enables it to target CPD and the production of resources to meet identified needs.

We have a produced a separate survey for primary and secondary schools. The secondary one is available here and will be accompanied by the primary version shortly.

On a local basis, primary D&T subject coordinator and secondary subject can make use of the data to support claims for equitable funding, curriculum time, class sizes etc. A previous survey ran for a period of 10 years and its findings were also used by a variety of bodies and professionals interested in D&T provision. Its findings have often been referred to by those reporting on the subject including Ofsted and Government agencies and it remains the only national survey that concentrates exclusively on D&T. 

This new version of the survey is being made available on line and should only take about 15 minutes to complete.

The data the survey generates will be published annually in a report available on the Association’s website with references in D&T Primary and D&T Practice.
