Technology Subjects in the National Curriculum

Education for Engineering (E4E) invites you to a conference examining the new Programmes of Study for Design and Technology and ICT in the National Curriculum.
Matthew Hancock MP, Parliamentary Undersecretary of State for Business and Education will present the Government’s view of the new curricula and there will be opportunities to take part in discussions on the Programmes of Study and the wider issues around the future of practical technical education in schools which will feed into our response to the National Curriculum Review. A full agenda for the event is below.
