Design Technology

Curriculum Intent

Design Technology at All Hallows follows AQA Design Technology. This allows all students who choose to study at Year 11, another GCSE, along with the opportunity to study a subject which will allow them to participate confidentially and successfully in an increasingly technological world.

The Importance of Design Technology

Design technology allows our students to learn how to become more resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable. Our department aims to provide all students with the opportunity to investigate and examine a range of designs and products through visual aids and hands-on experience. As we progress through the curriculum our aim is to develop student awareness in taking a product from initial problem to a final solution. All Design Technology students will build upon:

  • Solving ‘real life’ problems (Being Creative)
  • Delivering what the client wants (Managing Information)
  • Appreciating that ‘quality’ in everything is essential (Thinking Skills and Personal Capabilities)
  • Decision making (Thinking, Problem-Solving and Decision-Making)
