  • Tried & tested tips & strategies that engage learners including boys, G&T & borderline students
  • Focus on key developmental areas identified by Ofsted e.g. assessment without levels, increasing creativity, higher level thinking skills
  • Hands on experience of various strategies specific to D&T textiles including Speed Designing (a strategy developed by Julie Boyd that is successful at increasing pace & creativity & which is proven to raise the achievement of boys and border line students)
  • Hands on experience of how to effectively apply Bloom’s Taxonomy within a D&T context to develop higher level thinking
  • Project ideas that develop outstanding teaching in D&T textiles, including project ideas that relate to the broader content of the D&T GCSE

What delegates say about this course: 

Easily achievable strategies and techniques and useful resources. 

Loved the practical strategies

A fab day! All ideas are ones I feel I can use in my day to day teaching.

Excellent - organised, clear and effective. Really helpful to see how Blooms / De Bonos can be used in textiles. Well worth coming for!
