Pupils experience Product Design from Transitus through to Design and Manufacture courses at examination level. We focus on creativity and innovation. Pupils have opportunities to make good use of knowledge and skills obtained in other subjects. For example we draw on numeracy and science when considering technical details and operational principles, and on aspects of social sciences when considering aspects of environmentalism and ethics, as well as other areas of the curriculum, personal experiences and interests.
Design and Manufacture can be taken to National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher level.
The ability to communicate effectively is an essential requirement in every field of endeavour. Graphic Communication allows pupils to develop a knowledge and understanding of the language of graphic communication and introduces pupils to the diversity of presentation methods. Pupils are prepared for examinations at National 5 and Higher level.
