Our AS/A level Design and Technology specification provides a unique opportunity in the curriculum for learners to identify and solve real problems by designing and making products or systems.

Design and Technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. This specification encourages learners to use creativity and imagination when applying iterative design processes to develop and modify designs, and to design and make prototypes that solve real world problems, considering their own and others’ needs, wants, aspirations and values.

Innovations Awards

Working in conjunction with the Welsh Government, our Innovations Awards encourage young people in Wales to be technologically innovative and appreciate the importance of Design and Technology.
