Design and Technology: Short Course (4575)
This non-material specific Design and Technology specification is an amalgamation of our five current subject specific short course options into a single short course specification, developed in response to feedback from teachers. The GCSE Design and Technology (Short Course) is far removed from previous Design and Technology short courses as it is a process-based specification, which allows candidates in the traditional Design and Technology areas to make small quality products.
Students build on the KS3 Design and Technology strategy and develop their knowledge and experience of materials and ingredients in order to design and make small scale products or prototypes.
It allows students to take a generic examination paper which addresses the 'across the board' approach of Design and Technology. Students can complete a design and make project which is equivalent to half the amount of work required for the full course and can be produced using any material or ingredient or combination.
