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 will develop your subject knowledge in mathematics for the design and technology GCSE.

Supported by 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, and better prepare students for the new key stage 4 and key stage 5 design and technology qualifications.

The mathematics content covered will help with teaching the rearranging of equations, comprehension of graphs, tessellation and calculations of measurements such as percentages, ratios, fractions, scale, calculating costs and quantities, area and volume. The course content is suitable for teachers delivering the Design and Technology GCSE with all English awarding bodies.

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.


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
