Raising Attainment in Primary DT

At its best, Design Technology helps children become critical thinkers and metacognitive learners, and develop practical skills in a range of settings. But the creative process in DT can sometimes be a bit aimless and unsophisticated. How do we ensure that DT skills and knowledge are being taught in enough depth, and in a progressive way? This course will provide a host of ideas for framing children’s creativity in DT in a logical and cohesive way. We will:

  • Explore how DT can be developed into a more integral part of the curriculum
  • Develop a richer understanding of the two elements of DT: engineering and food technology
  • Show you how to improve teaching and learning in DT in simple and practical ways

About this course

Design Technology includes more practical life skills than any other subject, and many of these are increasingly crucial in today’s world: cooking; designing a healthy diet; and practical skills that our children will need when they grow up and move into their own homes. Like any other subject, these skills need to be taught and practiced, but DT can often be the ‘poor relation’ in the curriculum when we focus on core subjects and humanities. This training will:

  • Explore how to structure your curriculum to meet – and exceed – the requirements of Ofsted’s new Inspection Framework

  • Provide you with a range of practical activities and ideas

  • Consider the use of DT to improve wellbeing, behaviour, and attitudes to learning

  • Look at how DT can be used as a gateway into other learning

 

Audience:

This course is appropriate for primary schools.

  • Primary teachers and TAs

  • Subject leaders

  • NQTs and RQTs
