D & T: Product Design A Level at St Wilfrid's RC College
The purpose of this design and technology course is not simply to acquire knowledge and
understanding but to apply learning to the solution of practical problems which arise in everyday life
and in industrial and commercial contexts.
All learning is underpinned by designing and making skills which lead to the production of outcomes
which satisfy a design brief. Students will learn to utilise CAD/CAM in the design and manufacture of
products, they will develop graphical communication and ICT skills to present and convey their
designs. The AS coursework project will be given a context, while the A2 coursework project will be
an open ended student centred project.
Students wishing to study Product Design but who did not study GCSE Design & Technology will be
considered for the course based upon their suitability and capability to cope with the demands of a
rigorous coursework centred qualification.
