What delegates say about this course

Brilliant & informative from start to finish. Really helped dispel worries about the new spec & changes

Lots of hands on practical tasks that you can use in your classroom & fab resources 

Excellent course, very informative. I can go back to school feeling confident about textiles and positive and exciting about the changes

Excellent, inspiring & useful. Information on other materials areas as well as textiles was really useful to get the bigger picture across D&T

Feeling excited about the changes and that textiles is strong within the D&T specification. 

An excellent course with new ideas for learning and projects.

I liked the personal touch and the small group really helped.

As a textiles specialist I was feeling quite negative about the new specifications and now I feel much better and much more confident. I understand how other materials can be linked to textiles quite easily in the classroom through hands on tasks. 

Found out the new GCSE isn’t the end of D&T in our school!

A chance to work with non traditional materials - it has definitely made this aspect not so scary!

Levers bit was fantastic - quick and understood how it links easily to textiles.
