Our latest projects, workshops, partnerships and face to face teacher stuff…
In 2014 we stimulated the D&T teacher movement through the launch and support for #TeachMeetDT. During the events we hosted in the first 6 months, over 500 teachers attended and over 100 teachers presented. TeachMeetDTs are all about sharing good practice and we encourage you to host one!
National 3D PRINTING
This one year project beginning in July 2015 is funded by the Department for Education and seeks to create a portfolio of expert resources produced by expert teachers of 3D Printing. Through an exciting partnership with BEEVERYCREATIVE, we have been able to donate 3D printers to schools across London.
Design_Ed is one of our latest projects aiming to provide leadership and showcase the very best pedagogy in Design & Technology. All work submitted is moderated by a team of educators, academics, designers or engineers and catagorised within a searchable database.
Far too often, funding restrictions in D&T and Engineering is an unnecessary hurdle for schools acquiring 21st century equipment. In partnership with The Mayor for London and the Department for Education, we are accelerating the access schools have to specialist equipment through an innovative STEM based crowd-funding platform.

A snapshot of what the Teach Design team has been getting up to
Ever been to a course and the best thing about it was the lunch? Expensive courses not led by teachers and current practitioners are expensive and sometime hard to find the value. Well this can’t be said for the TeachMeet movement! A TeachMeet is an organised but informal meeting (in the style of an unconference)[…]
