Welcome to CJDT
CJDT runs a wide range of Design Technology projects from woodwork to electronics. All projects are in line with the National Curriculum, but can also be tailored to your specific needs.
Projects run over a period of several weekly sessions, which are booked as a set of private lessons for a group of up to to 4 children at a time, delivered from Cuxton in our Homeschool room.
Do you like the idea of doing DT/Woodwork at home with your child/children, but are not sure where to start? Then come to one of CJDT's evenings just for parents and see how you too could start doing DT at home.

A definition of what Design Technology is as written on www.gov.uk:
"Design and technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. Using creativity and imagination, pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. They acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world. High-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation."
