Enabling teachers to continually update their subject skills, knowledge and understanding is of vital importance, but we are all aware of the difficulties involved that arise in attending training due to issues relating to funding or ‘rarely cover’. Building on the success of the 2010 North West Design and Technology event held at Daresbury Laboratories, this year’s free event for teachers aims to provide even more opportunities for delegates to gain new and update existing skills. Having presented a Technological Textiles Workshop at Daresbury,in helping to plan for this year we contacted several delegates from last year’s conference to see what, if any, impact our workshop had on their classroom practice and we were delighted to uncover many examples of good practice where the workshop had impacted directly upon classroom activity.
