Design and Technology

Welcome to D and T Create - a FREE site for Design and Technology students KS3 - KS5

"Achievement through creativity, understanding and endeavour"

Design and Technology is a FREE resource for students and staff. The site was created 4 years ago as a resource to support students through their GSCE courses. As the resource has grown the site now includes contributions from students and staff alike from throughout the UK. The common message is one of sharing and providing support for this outstanding subject. The contributors give freely of their time posting project outlines for all key stages, homework sheets and even coursework examples for students to use as inspiration.

Resource Sharing?

Would you like to share resources, or even have a dedicated webpage for your specific department? If so just simply email resources, thoughts, queries to and provide information as to where you think your contribution is appropriate to place on our site. Remember to include your name and school as we will credit you for your input. Please note that it has to be all of your own work – no plagiarism or copyright infringement (unless you have writer permission to use the resource).

Are you a member of the Forum?

This is a great place for students and staff alike to talk about everything to do with Technology. Why not encourage your class to become members (school email needed for registration) so that they can support each other outside of lesson time?
Teachers can become moderators of the Forum – they get a greater access of those posting.

As a subject Design and Technology equips students with the necessary creative and problem solving skills that allow them to interact fully with the world. Students gain experience of working in the key areas of Resistant Materials, Graphical Products, Product Design, Systems and Control, Textiles and Food Technology (depending on the curriculum decided by the Secondary School). Design and Technology students are expected to operate as real designers do and bring in additional materials to support their design realisation.
