What to expect 

As a D&T teacher, you’ll nurture pupils’ creativity and teach them the skills to not only come up with brilliant ideas, but to turn them into a reality. By doing so, you’ll be teaching a subject that complements their wider learning and brings it to life in practical terms – from maths and science to computing and art.

Your training will focus on how you can encourage pupils to be resourceful, innovative and enterprising as they solve real and relevant problems. Find out more about choosing the best teacher training courses
