Alt Bridge Design Technology Department Curriculum Intent

At Alt Bridge the departments approach to Design and Technology is essentially based on the concept of ‘Technology for all’ and aims to challenge pupils to design and make creative products in the areas of: Resistant Materials, Graphics, and Product Design.

Pupils will learn to think creatively and solve problems, as individuals and as members of a team. They will work as a designer who looks for opportunities to design and make useful products. Learn how to design things and begin to understand why products are designed and styled as they are. They learn how to make products in a wide range of materials including: woods, plastics, metals, paper, and card.

Implementation:

We teach in relatively small groups to promote personalisation of learning and support given to each student. That said, we also promote independence through individual work and peer projects with staff support. We use a range of technology including IPads and App’s to also support the development of pupils subject knowledge and practical skills. It is part of our professional mission to support all our students on their journey towards becoming confident, happy and successful young people with well-planned and meaningful future destinations.


Design and Technology is a subject that aims to prepare pupils for today’s world of rapidly changing technology.

Learn how to design things and begin to understand why products are designed and styled as they are. They learn how to make products in a wide range of materials including: woods, plastics, metals, paper, card and using electronic components.

Pupils will also learn how products have an effect on the world we live in and how they impact upon the environment and people to hopefully make the world a better place.

Ultimately we hope pupils learn how to become the designers and innovators of the future and have fun doing so.
