Abstract: Economic and industrial understanding is a legal requirement under the Educational Reform Act and all of our pupils have an entitlement to it regardless of race, gender and ability. It contributes to the personal and social development of pupils and helps prepare them with skills and attitudes for adult life. Teaching of economic and industrial understanding is whole-heartedly supported by industry, The Government, the community and schools. Design Technology is a superb subject to promote all aspects of economic and industrial awareness. The knowledge, skills and attitudes laid down in the Curriculum Guidance reinforce those of the Design and Technology National Curriculum orders. As teachers of Design and technology we are already meeting many of the economic and industrial understanding knowledge, skills and attitudes. Not only this we are doing it in a concrete way using real situations in lots of different and exciting ways. We encourage pupils to take an active part in their learning and aid full understanding of economic and industrial understanding in their world.
