Design Technology - Product Design at Island Innovation VI Form Campus
This is a growth industry, crying out
for new talent. Product design is more
than function fulfilment, it is instinct,
curiosity, enthusiasm and passion.
You will initially opt for a one year AS
level in Product Design and can then
take A2 Product Design in the following
year to obtain the full A level.
You will undertake one design and make
project, choosing a brief that challenges
you and at the same time is achievable.
Explore and experiment to find the
most suitable materials, construction
techniques and styles to suit the
product. Plan to keep within budget
and time limits. Develop sketches and
visuals of possible design solutions. After
designing you will model using CAD and
CAM to develop and produce detailed
technical drawings. Finally, create a
prototype and test the final solution.
Students need 5 GCSEs A-C grade,
including a BTEC or GCSE Design,
Technology, Engineering or creative
subject. Students will also benefit
from a strong design/art folder.
This course will help to prepare you
for a vast range of highly creative
jobs in design and also more technical
and skilled jobs in production and
