Design, Technology & Engineering Leads NW Network 

1.00pm to 4.30pm at Warrington Fablab - Beamont Collegiate Academy

We will spend the first session doing a needs analysis for each school and qualification. We'll identify where we can support each other and where we need to pull in exam board expertise.

External moderation opportunities and joint planning of curriculum to meet the new Ofsted criteria.

Gatsby Benchmarks and Ofsted Curriculum focussed session - John Grimshaw leads an Autodesk Masterclass (or maybe an introduction to..!). He'll lead you through 3D Design modelling and onscreen prototyping.

This will support you to enable your students to reach the higher marks on their portfolios or coursework. In addition he'll talk about opportunities and the benefits of collaboration with industry professionals to inspire your students.

Finally, for those who want to look at rapid prototyping for students in - we can offer an optional session.


The aims of the Aspire to STEM programme are to:
• Improve leadership to support STEM teaching
• Develop teacher STEM pedagogy to support disadvantaged pupils
• Increase Science Capital within disadvantaged communities
• Strengthen Careers Information and Guidance (particularly strengthening technical pathways)
• Highlight the vast resources to help teaching and promote careers in STEM
• Encourage enrichment activities in schools for pupils and the community to raise awareness of STEM careers

Specific outcomes for this particular activity will be communicated to participating schools directly.
