Primary Design and Technology Teachers TV

Teachers TV was originally a television channel which aimed to provide professional development support for teachers, school leaders, support staff and governors. Many of the programmes were filmed inside real classrooms, with teachers sharing good practice and ideas for lessons.

The videos in this collection are a selection of the programmes aimed at primary school design and technology teachers. The collection contains materials suitable for use as stimulus material in the classroom or when planning learning activities. There are also programmes which give advice and guidance on teaching and learning strategies in design and technology.
