Wishing all Design Technology students the best of luck in their results for their Design technology May 2014 exams. Results Day is on 6th July – so not too far away now! As I sure you have already been told that this is not the end but the beginning of an exciting life and career – either through College/ University or the World of Work!
I hope many of you have been inspired by your Design and Technology course and are going on to study or work in the world of design and technology – whether that be Architecture, Fashion, Civil Engineering, Product Design, Graphic Design…the list could go on. Remember to keep in touch with your teachers – the one thing Design and Technology teachers love is to here from their past students that have been inspired by their course and gone on to be successful in the world of Design and Technology.
Finally remember to keep on researching, keeping those eyes open and being inspired by others – just to get you off to a good start here are some great recent Design and Technology links :-
