More course information

Product Design allows students to be creative, to take a broad view of design and use innovative techniques and materials, keeping up with new technology whilst being environmentally aware. The course is suitable for any of the Design and Technology GCSE disciplines, although best suited for students from Product Design, Resistant Materials or Graphic Products backgrounds.

Over the two years, students will learn how products are designed and manufactured using a variety of materials and components through both practical and theory lessons. The course allows tremendous flexibility for the final project outcome. Any material may be used, provided that the final outcome is a three dimensional product with commercial potential. Possible outcomes include innovative home-ware, furniture, sports equipment, equipment for people with disabilities, point of sale display and promotional materials. Students will look into ways that they and designers can become better contributors to society, becoming more culturally, environmentally and socially aware of how design can influence the world.
