Summary

The journey that an idea for a product takes can vary dramatically depending on the research and testing methods used. This four-topic unit covers different enterprise opportunities as well as the post product realisation processes of branding and marketing in the modern digital age. Students will learn how to conduct a feasibility study to gauge a products potential and why it is vital in a products success. The unit culminates by looking at the many forms of design communication and suggests which may be better for any given task.

What people say...

I think the units are very good and have saved me hundreds of hours of work, which, after 22 years of teaching, is a blessing.

Mr Phil Andrews. Head of Design and Technology, St Joseph's Catholic High School

We recently used some of the free resources in the sections we aim to purchase from you with our pupils and the feedback was very positive indeed. The information was pitched perfectly to our pupils, they enjoyed the content and the pace at which it can be delivered was spot on.
