Programmes link together in themes to focus on:

  • Planning for Practice;
  • Brief Development;
  • Outcome Evaluation.

Key competencies and values are also integrated within programmes.

Students gain knowledge and skills essential for their own lives and all kinds of careers by working in teams and individually. Portfolios communicate the design process and allow students to take responsibility for decisions. Extension opportunities enhance students’ understanding of the technological process in depth, for example the BP Challenge and design competitions.
