Abstract: School experience is recognised as an important part of courses leading to qualified teacher status. For those training to be specialists in design and technology, the opportunity to teach the subject is essential. This can, however, prove difficult and the provision of modules specifically aimed to provide the experience has become important. This paper describes a small-scale research project to evaluate such a module from the perspective of all involved. It illustrates that, with careful planning, it is possible to provide a period of reflective practice for students whilst at the same time raising the profile of the subject in school and give children an enhanced design and technology experience.
