From idea generation, through to planning and prototyping, critical evaluation, testing and modification, lessons look at how to get the best from an NEA project brief. Also considered is the selection of tools and equipment and the strategies employed to achieve accuracy in manufacturing.

What people say...

PG Online resources are very well planned and easy to use. Inspection copies are also useful as this enables me to make better choices with our limited budgets.

Gillian Broadhead. ACTL Creative and Technical Studies, Ridgewood High School

The assessments have proved invaluable at tracking pupil progress and for informing interventions. The resources have saved us hundreds of hours of time, and we are very grateful!
