Introduction:

Since National Curriculum Design and Technology was introduced as a core subject, Collingwood has maintained its position as a curriculum innovator and leader in the field of Design and Technology.

The prime aim of Design and Technology at Collingwood is to provide students with the necessary skills and knowledge to solve real life problems. Such problems rarely have just one possible solution and as a consequence are particularly difficult to solve. Through the study of Design and Technology, students are involved in applying knowledge and principles to enable them to design, plan, manufacture and evaluate.
