Today the DfE has published the final ‘Subject content, aims and objectives for GCSE in design and technology for teaching from 2017’. This is the document that the Awarding Organisations will base new specifications on.
Note that we still have to hear from Ofqual about the final results of their consolation on the assessment of this GCSE.
It turns I just didn’t look hard enough; the result of the Ofqual consultation was also published today.
In addition we also understand that there will be further guidance on assessment for the Awarding Organisations from Ofqual in due course. We’ll posy any updates here.
