The one year CDT conversion course, first introduced by Goldsmiths' College has now been running there for seven years, generally taking between IS and 20 students each year. It is anticipated that students will teach in both Middle schools and in the first three years of Secondary schools. With further in-service training and Departmental help they should become teachers of CDT at all levels.

The course is structured to equip teachers with the basic skills needed for the teaching of Design activities to pupils with an emphasis placed on an understanding of working with wood, metal and plastics from an Integrated Design approach. It may be appreciated that a one year course must be of an intensive nature and a sample first term's timetable illustrates this.
