Design & Technology at Key Stage 3

At Key Stage 3, learners should be given opportunities to build on the skills, knowledge and understanding acquired at Key Stage 2. They should be taught to design and make products by combining their designing and making skills with knowledge and understanding in contexts that allow them to make decisions based on the values that underpin society, helping them become active and informed citizens. They should be made aware of human achievements and the big ideas that have shaped the world. They should be encouraged to beĀ  enterprising and innovative in their designing and making, while having regard for sustainability and environmental issues in the twenty-first century.
