Product Design A-Level at Wymondham High School

Course description

THERE ARE TWO PATHWAYS WITHIN this qualification – Resistant Materials Technology and Graphic Products. Each pathway has its own specific content. This qualification emphasises two key factors – creativity and sustainability. We all want students to explore ideas of originality and value, to question and challenge, to envisage what could be, but equally we need them to achieve the results that will progress their careers. This qualification structure allows students to develop a range of skills and outcomes at Advanced Subsidiary (AS) which demonstrate their creativity and apply these to a design and make project at A2.

Entry requirements

It is expected that students are passionate about designing. They will need to have aptitude in creativity and problem solving, and a sound knowledge of materials and commercial manufacturing techniques. Students can be accepted from any of the GCSE D&T disciplines, but Resistant Materials, Product Design or Graphic Products is the more standard route. You will need a grade B in the subject, as this course is demanding, needing enthusiasm, commitment, an open creative mind and a willingness to learn.

Future opportunities
