Summary

Building on the previously covered environmental responsibilities that designers need to consider, this unit challenges wasteful attitudes and presents a modern methodology for responsible designing. Industry standard quality control implementation is investigated including an array of testing methods. The unit culminates in a lesson on national and international standards, government and EU directives and the role NGOs play in the protection and monitoring of the welfare of people and places.

What people say...

The lessons and units are organised well and the fact that you can edit them is great. Thanks for putting together the resources in a bright and interactive way helping to engage students.

Khuram Sardar. Head of Design Technology, British School Muscat

I relied heavily on your teaching materials for the AS Computer Science with AQA and I'm pleased to say the students did wonderfully well. Many of them got As, the lowest was a C and the residuals were the best in the school for an AS subject.
