Design and Technology: Graphic Products (4550)
This is our current GCSE specification.
For our new specification see:
GCSE Design and Technology: Graphic Products enables students to design and make products with creativity and originality, using a range of graphic and modelling materials.
Students will be enthused and challenged by the range of practical activities possible. They will be encouraged to learn to use, understand and apply colour and design through images, to develop spatial concepts, and to understand graphic materials and their manipulation. They will design and make product(s) using graphic media and new technologies to prepare them for the world of work.
This course has 60 per cent controlled assessment in order to recognise the importance of practical work within this subject.
We are also developing a Level 1/2 Technical Award in Visual Communication 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.
