Design and Technology: Product Design 3D at Stantonbury Campus
This area of study is designed to encourage you to understand the development of a broad view of Design and Technology and the ability to design and make a high quality and successful product. Within the coursework we encourage original thought and experimentation with media and materials to create new and exciting idea development. Understanding and appreciation of the complex relations between design, materials, manufacture and marketing will be key. You will be given the opportunity to develop an understanding of a broad range of materials, with emphasis on the life cycle of products, manufacture and final disposal. Broader issues for the designer are learnt including the environmental sustainability of products and consumer safety. You could take this course to complement other courses such as Art, Maths, Sciences, or it could lead you on to higher education to study any product design subject/engineering/architecture or related profession or more general higher education courses. Design is also useful in most areas of employment as it shows the ability to cope with problem solving and developing creative solutions. There is a mixture of coursework, project work and final examination papers at both AS and A2. You will have the opportunity to visit annual design exhibitions and lectures. Recent trips have included a visit to the Design Museum and the ‘Inspired by Design’ lectures at University College, London.
Five level two qualifications (e.g. A* - C as GCSE) At least four of these grades will be from GCSEs. Grade C or above in GCSE Design and Technology or equivalent
