What is the content for the D&T Roadshows from Sept 2018 - July 2019?

There†are two types of content, one that focuses on all D&T materials (paper & board, wood, metal, polymers & textiles) †& another that also includes a focus on all D&T materials but which is more focused on doing this from a textiles perspective. Both types have different content & it’s relevant to attend both.†

What do delegates say about The D&T Roadshow?

It was great - the message about†multi materials was†strong and inspiring.†

Absolutely†fantastic course, enjoyed it all and am brimming with ideas.†Excited rather than concerned about delivering the materials content.†

Amazing†course. Love the short, sharp tasks and time to play. Loved the applying of other materials outside my experience too.†

It was such a†brilliant day and I’m going away feeling inspired. A really well organised day.†

Really great price considering the time, materials,†content and inspiration.†

Exceeded my expectations. I’m buzzing with ideas to take back to my school. I’ve had a fantastic day!

The underlying message of positivity was encouraging.†

I†[attended]†as a nervous RM 'specialist' trying to get some inspiration for delivering the Textiles content of the new spec. I'm now absolutely buzzing! Well resourced and very, very useful, I'm very glad I went. If you get the chance to attend - do.

A great low cost†informative course with plenty of ideas to take back to school.

It was more relevant to me as a non specialist Product Design teacher than I expected.†

Lots of ideas and opportunity to actually use them.

Really fantastic to have an affordable course on a Saturday.†

Great combination of workshops. Fantastic affordable course.

Made me feel more confident with those pesky bits of the curriculum! So many links and ways to combine materials. I was†worried†about levers and mechanisms but now I have textiles equipment examples which will help me explain things.†

Roadshow ticket price

The Roadshow started off as a small event local to where we live but over the years it has grown way beyond our expectations with†events running nationally. The cost has remained the same for†nearly†7 years but it is no longer cost†effective to run it for this price, particularly†given the practical nature of the course. The increase in price not only enables us to†continue running the events but it also allows us to roll out new venues, including those that might attract lower numbers in less accessible areas. The new £80 price is based on feedback from past delegates who were asked to identify a fee they felt was a fair reflection of the content, whilst still being affordable to schools with a limited budget.†
