Designing and Making in Nottingham Primary Schools

In January 1984 Nottinghamshire's Curriculum Development Support Service (CDSS) launched a two-year project to support Craft Design and Technology (CDT) developments in Primary schools. Now, at the end of this initiative, much has been learned about the role CDT can play in the education of children at primary school. The CDT primary pilot project was initiated by the County Advisory and Inspection Service in partnership with the CDSS and responded to enquiries from schools throughout the County.
