I am a qualified teacher (Head of Department) that actively seeks employment in schools where Design Technology provisions are poor. The funding is for a selection of CAD-CAM (Computer Aided Design - Computer Aided Manufacturing) equipment that will raise the profile of Design Technology in a secondary school setting. Students will have full access to the equipment and will be instrumental in raising the profile of the subject to students and the grades they achieve. As an individual I have a proven track record of exactly this at Thetford Academy and East Point Academy.
Equipment purchased will be on clear show during key school events such as parents evening, transition days so that the local community can improve its knowledge of this important cross curricular subject.
