DESIGN TECHNOLOGY 11F - Full Year

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr A. Nugent

Design Technology at Level 1 focuses on core technical skills and designing for a particular client. Students will learn to design and manage projects for a particular client, addressing their needs and building to a specific set of specifications. It is not an introductory course, 

There is flexibility in the second project of Level 1 Design Technology and students will be able to work on more individualised projects that are restricted primarily by their creative thinking skills and enthusiasm. Due to the individualised nature of projects, course costs will vary between students.

As some of the coursework is online, it is highly recommended that students bring an appropriate device to class.


Recommended Prior Learning

Completion of year 10 Construction or Hard Materials courses to an acceptable standard or by negotiation with the HoD, Mr Nugent.

Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

Materials for take home projects will be costed and a fee will be determined if the student wishes to take their completed product away.
