*New A-Level subject for September 2022*
These creative and thought-provoking qualifications will give you the practical skills, theoretical knowledge and confidence to succeed in a number of careers - especially those in the creative industries. You will investigate historical, social, cultural, environmental and economic influences on Design and Technology, whilst enjoying opportunities to put your learning into practice by producing your own practical outcomes. You will gain a real understanding of what it means to be a designer, alongside the knowledge and skills sought by higher education and employers.
Product Design and Fashion & Textiles are taught together, as the non-examination assessment (NEA) structure is identical and a portion of the theory work is the same, such as design styles and environmental issues.
You will receive specific instruction and support from a specialist teacher for your chosen area of study and access to traditional and modern practical equipment.
