Cambridge O Level Design & Technology enables learners to identify, consider and solve problems through creative thinking, planning and design. They learn to work with different media, materials and tools to produce a made product. Learners gain technical and design awareness and develop skills such as initiative, resourcefulness, enquiry and ingenuity. They also develop the communication skills central to the design process.
