E4E sets out proposals for Design and Technology in schools
14 March 2013
Education for Engineering (E4E), the body that offers advice on education and skills policy to government, has outlined its proposals for the national curriculum subject, Design and Technology.
Currently Design and Technology is the only practical, hands-on, technical subject in the national curriculum in England. While it is currently being overhauled in the National Curriculum Review, the current draft being proposed by the Department for Education has an emphasis on basic craft skills.
A new report by Education for Engineering (E4E) - New Principles for Design and Technology - aims to identify the core knowledge and skills components for Design and Technology across the subject's sub-disciplines.
The E4E report can be read here.
