Believe in D and T
As the UK government reviews the national curriculum and design technology’s status as a compulsory school subject, the Design & Technology Association, the James Dyson Foundation and industrial designers Seymourpowell have started a campaign to secure the future of design and technology education.
We're supporting the campaign.
A key part of the campaign is this movie featuring industry experts and leading designers talking about the importance of design education. Contributors include fashion designer Paul Smith, Jaguar design director Ian Callum, Design Museum director Deyan Sudjic, Design Council chief executive David Kester and the founders of Seymourpowell.
The Design Council supports multi-disciplinary education, in schools and higher education and in November 2010 held a debate on The missing d: The value of design to STEM education
