Primary: Excellent Design and Technology

Primary Design and Technology: Planning, Progression, Assessment


Support and development training for teachers with responsibility for D&T and Key Stage 2 teachers


This full day, hands-on course aims to develop delegates’ confidence and practical expertise in some of the more technically demanding aspects of design and technology at KS2. The course will start with a strategic overview of D&T , including key issues raised by Ofsted, and strategies for planning, progression and assessment. The remainder of the day will be used to develop practical skills, techniques and know-how in mechanical and electrical systems and to produce teaching aids that can be used back in school.
The course will include:
  • Ofsted and primary D&T – key issues and strategies for the subject leader
  • Ensuring progression in children’s learning
  • Developing an assessment system
  • Long and medium-term planning
  • Workshop 1: Electrical systems
  • Workshop 2: Mechanical systems, focusing on gears and pulleys

Please note, there is an additional charge of £10 per person for materials and equipment which will be used in the workshops. Delegates will be able to take their projects away with them.


Delegates will:
  • Develop a clear understanding of what D&T is
  • Have an overview of EYFS and NC requirements in D&T
  • Receive guidance on effective D&T planning across all primary phases
  • Gain practical strategies for leading and supporting colleagues in school
