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...

PG Online’s AQA Design and Technology resources have been so helpful in delivering the new GCSE course. Students respond positively to the helpful PowerPoints, clear homework sheets and assessments that are a true reflection of the new content. Thank you so much for making something that seemed daunting, so manageable and teachable. 

Miss Catriona O’Connor. Design and Technology Teacher, Redruth School

The PowerPoints were relevant, linked directly to the text book and were clear to follow with a superb teacher guide to help. Homework sheets, video clips and exam resources really brought the course up to date and feedback from students is excellent, the new intake is the greatest in 20 years!
