How to get the best design and technology tutoring with GoStudent

Is your kid taking a design and technology course? Whether they’re in secondary or primary school design and technology lessons or at university, a tutor offers the fastest way to better grades. Let’s look at what’s involved in this fun and challenging subject and what design and technology tutoring should look like.

What are careers that stem from a design and technology course?

Design and technology lessons teach a broad spectrum of skills. It’s one of the most diverse subjects around, and the most practical! Your kid could consider pursuing higher education as a result and choose one of the following career paths:

  • Civil engineering
  • Graphic design
  • Electrical engineering
  • Industrial design
  • Software engineering
  • Architecture
  • Product design

These are just the tip of the iceberg too. A design and technology course is great preparation for a number of fields and can help your child explore different options and ultimately choose an area they enjoy and want to specialise in. If they dream of working for a tech giant or large multinational, many have found their way in with these skills. 🏢

These types of careers are attractive to those who end up in them because they’re so fulfilling. For example, a product designer has to think “how will the consumer feel when they see this product and how will they interact with it?”. They also have to make a product that is functional and practical. It’s a challenging task!

What’s in a design and technology exam?

While a design and technology course always has a practical element to it, there is also a lot of theory involved. Depending on what level your kid is at and which school or uni, subject matter tested on a Design and technology exam can include the following:

  • Materials
  • Techniques
  • Processes
  • Safety
  • Sustainability

Is primary school design and technology hard?

Primary school design and technology can pose a real challenge for some kids. While many love it for the practical experiences gained, it also involves Maths and theory. On top of this, there is a creative element so it really engages the entire brain and there are usually some areas that are stronger than others for students.

A design and technology tutor will make sure your kid is on top of all of the elements.

Are secondary school design and technology lessons hard?

The subject builds upon learned principles and techniques each year so that the design and technology lessons get more difficult as students progress. On top of Maths, other disciplines are brought in at this level like Science and Engineering. 💫

More sophisticated equipment will be introduced too and the design projects and theory become more complex. Many schools now even have 3D printers that form part of the design and technology coursework.

A design and technology tutor will be able to explain how all of these moving parts fit together and break everything down into more manageable pieces. So, what do you look for in design and technology tutoring?What to look for in design and technology tuition?

Design and technology tuition is there to guide students on any weaker areas and push them (gently and supportively) to focus on these. It’s important that your kid has a design and technology tutor they gel with and respect. They should look forward to going to their one-to-one classes and not see them as a chore.

You also want to find a dedicated tutor that will set up a design and technology revision and learning plan tailored to your kid’s goals. That way they can work through the topics together and the sense of achievement is greater and it reduces stress as your child will see what they need to do and when.

Since so much of design and technology lessons are about the online world and design, video classes are a great option. Online design and technology tutoring offers a number of significant benefits over its face-to-face counterpart:

  • More affordable
  • A wider selection of tutors to pick from
  • More flexible when it comes to scheduling
