I noticed a dearth of jobs in DT over the last year (in Yorkshire) and in general I sense it is on the decline. A local indy school has just removed DT (and PE) from the school entirely as exam subjects and I have heard of another state school threatening the same if results are bad next summer. I know the eBacc is forcing us down the list of subjects to keep, and I imagine the cost of machinery and materials plus the health and safety considerations are tempting reasons to ditch the subject. Very sad if so as its all I have ever taught and love the subject. Anyone other opinions on this are welcome.
