TSBC News – Coach Spotlight: Roy Marshall
Design and Technology is a unique subject which develops a significant range of key transferable skills. The curriculum is offered from Year 7 to 13 and has been designed to promote a healthy understanding of Design and Technology in its broadest sense. The subject offers pupils such a rich opportunity for creative development and independent learning, bringing together aspects of other subjects such as Maths, Physics and Art into a real life context.
Whilst working from realistic project briefs, pupils are encouraged to deeply consider the needs and desires of their target user group and how they can best fulfil these. Iterative design and reflection is central to our design philosophy. It is essential that pupils have the opportunity to develop their own, unique designs and that they are inspired to develop these based on their research whilst drawing on rich sources of inspiration. Due consideration is given to communication skills, effective time management and project planning. An awareness of design being fit for purpose and an understanding of technology within society are also highlighted.
