Developing mathematics skills for the new design and technology GCSE TY225

Improve your subject knowledge and develop strategies for teaching the mathematics content in the new design and technology GCSE.


Designed to support teachers from all material areas, this CPD activity will develop your subject knowledge in mathematics ready for delivery of design and technology GCSE.

With support from our mathematics specialists, investigate the subject knowledge needed to solve mathematics problems that form part of the assessed material in the new design and technology GCSE. Develop successful teaching methods for delivery in the classroom. Identify areas of the key stage 3 design and technology curriculum where mathematics could be incorporated, increasing student exposure to the practical application of mathematics outside of their maths lessons, and better preparing students for the new key stage 4 and key stage 5 design and technology qualifications.

The mathematics content covered during the course will help with the teaching of rearranging equations, comprehension of graphs, tessellation and calculations of measurements such as percentages, ratios, fractions, scale, calculating costs and quantities, area and volume.

Receive free teaching resources to support your teaching of mathematics, and our online community group will ensure that you are just a click away from our subject specialists when you go back to the classroom.

This is a residential course, fees include meals and accommodation for the duration of the course.
Course fees vary for participants outside the UK. Please contact for more information.



You will be able to:

  • develop your own subject knowledge in the teaching of mathematics
  • create your own teaching resources to support teaching the new design and technology GCSE
  • identify areas in the key stage 3 curriculum that can help develop mathematics skills, strengthening design and technology qualifications and maths across the curriculum
