The introduction of the contextual challenge represents a significant change as a new means of assessment in the design and technology GCSE. But it also offers new freedom and opportunity to students and their teachers. This course had been designed to help you steer your students through the exercise, remaining firmly within the Awarding Organisation’s (AOs) regulations to help ensure they have the best possible experience.
The day has been developed by experts at the D&T Association who working with DfE, were closely involved in the 2015/16 GCSE reform process. But importantly, the accompanying resources and suggested approaches have been created by a small group of practicing D&T teacher experts working full time in school.
The course will use exemplar challenges, like those to be published in June 2018, but the advice provided will support this and future year’s work. Indeed, it will also be helpful when supporting earlier Key Stage 3 activity.
Attending the course will enable you to clarify:
These courses are scheduled to be run by the teacher experts who have developed them. They are relevant to all those teaching the new single title GCSE even if their school does not have a year 10 group entered for the first presentation in 2019.
It would be helpful for the afternoon session if you had access to a laptop or tablet computer we will be exploring some material in pdf format on screen as part of an assessment exercise. You will work in pairs but having your own machine will be beneficial. We cannot guarantee internet connection to enable downloading of files but, we will provide the files locally on USB drives. (Those using ipads please note if wifi is not available then you will need cellular connection).
We also request that bring with you a copy of the Awarding Organisation’s GCSE Design and Technology specification that you are planning to work with. This can either be in printed or electronic format.
In order to maintain the quality of our courses, we ask our delegates to book in advance and you will receive a confirmation email of your booking. Delegates that have not booked prior to the event cannot be guaranteed a space.
