Hello I am after some ideas and help if possible, my school has over the last 3 years cut the time available for KS3 and KS4 design Technology lessons. The new timetable for 2015-2016 is now down to one 45 min lesson every other week. However I have been told that KS4 must still go away with a qualification. This works out to be 14 hrs per academic year. They have suggested that I start GCSE's at the beginning of year 9. Any ideas about what I can do would be gratefully received as everything I have looked at require a lot more time.
