Design Technology

Inspiring students to develop their innovative and creative capacities


Design and Technology is an exciting course at Monkton. This large department can be found next door to Art and Photography and has its very own ICT suite. This course provides opportunities for students to develop an eclectic mix of skills and knowledge centred on designing and making tangible products. Students will learn how to communicate their design ideas using 3D modelling and graphical techniques including marker pen rendering and computer imaging. Uniquely, the course requires them to be able to plan and schedule the making of their product taking into account production methods and health and safety considerations.

A level

This course will inspire students to develop their innovative and creative capacities through designing and making high quality products. It will give students an appreciation of the complex relations between design, materials, manufacture and marketing both historically and in the present day. The course also offers opportunities for project management, from the design brief through to manufacturing the final product.
