Why AQA GCSE Design and Technology?

Our Design and Technology GCSE qualifications enable students to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world. They will learn from the wider influences on the subject including historical, social, cultural, environmental and economic factors.

Our courses cover core technical and designing and making principles, including a broad range of design processes, materials, techniques and equipment. Students will also have the opportunity to study specialist technical principles in greater depth through a chosen material area.

We are also developing a suite of Technical Awards for this subject for first teaching in 2017. Sign up for updates, or find out more about the changes to GCSEs and which qualifications we are planning to offer in the future.
