Key stage 4

Students will be required to study the core technical principles, specialist technical principles and design and making principles. Students will then be assessed on the application of these skills through a non-examined assessment (NEA).

Within the NEA students will be required to identify and investigate design possibilities, produce design briefs and specification, generate design ideas, develop these ideas, realise these through practical application of the principles they have studied and evaluate the final design.
