What people say...

As DT teachers we often struggle to find resources that come up to standard so it was refreshing to find your resources which look fantastic by the way!! With this, my mind was made up that the cost of the resources was more than worth it particularly when I saw the offer of spreading the cost over three years.

Andrew White. Head of Design Technology, Monmouth School for Boys

These materials are excellent for teaching the AQA course and convenient for setting homework and allowing students access to the same reference materials they have in class.
