capability through the completion of creative practical project work.
Students design and create design solutions which meet the needs of
briefs provided by the examination board. These briefs provide enough
scope for students to provide their own practical solutions developing their
design, research and analysis skills. They communicate their ideas using
a variety of ICT techniques developing solutions which reflect ‘real world’
industrial and commercial practices.
