GCSE Design and Technology
Teaching: Sep 2017
Summer 2021 Adaptations Update:
Summary of assessment sheets have been removed from this page as these adaptations were published prior to the Welsh Government’s announcement that there will be no summer exams for GCSE, AS and A level qualifications. The Design and Delivery Advisory Group is in the process of developing proposals on how externally set and marked assessments will be structured in 2021.
Our GCSE 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.
Through studying GCSE Design and Technology, learners will be prepared to participate confidently and successfully in an increasingly technological world; and be aware of, and learn from, wider influences on design and technology, including historical, social/cultural, environmental and economic factors.
