'A New Respect for the Work We Do'
These are exciting and interesting times for Technology and Design teachers. We are witnessing, across the nation, the germination and growth of a new understanding of and a new respect for the work we do.
We are finding new and better ways of approaching the business of developing practical capability for pupils. We are establishing a new, central position in the school.
Changes like these do not take place quickly, or uniformly across the nation; nor do they happen without the dedication and hard work of the Design and Technology workforce. DESTECH recognises this commitment and sense of purpose; to a large extent, DESTECH exists to support teachers, wherever they are, in their attempts to establish the central role of Design and Technology within the school curriculum.
