Subject renewal (implementation)

Design, Technology and Engineering Subject renewal – implementation

To successfully teach Stage 1 and Stage 2 Design, Technology and Engineering as a renewed subject in 2020, we are supporting you and your school with a suite of implementation activities.

To learn why we renew subjects, see Subject renewal and implementation.

Pathway to successful implementation

Implementation activities will be delivered through online PLATO courses and in-person workshops. To gain maximum benefit, it is recommended that you complete the online course before attending any workshops.

This flowchart is designed to guide you through activities used to successfully implement Stage 1 and Stage 2 Design, Technology and Engineering at your school in 2020.
