How will I benefit?

You will find out how to develop the transferable skill set required by young people to live and work in a global society. Working with unfamiliar contexts is central to the Design and Technology. This course will signpost approaches to supporting older students in identifying contexts and engaging with end users and real-world problems beyond their own experience. This will encourage independent, critical enquiry, as well as risk taking and problem solving.

Time commitment

Level 2

A five hour workshop, a design challenge and a webinar.

Level 3

A six hour workshop, two webinars, and a four hour evaluation event.

Delivery

Provider: Design and Technology Association.
