Products that are fit for purpose, satisfy wants and needs, enhance our day-today lives and, most importantly, give students the opportunity to demonstrate their design and technology capability. The course is divided into 4 units over 2 years. The first 2 units consist of a design and make project and a written exam paper leading to an AS qualification.
