BESA has been awarded the MARK OF EXCELLENCE award in the Best Association Newsletter category, announced on 27 February.
BESA has published a new report to review D&T resourcing in secondary schools, focusing particularly on differences between authority schools in England and those now selected as academies. Data in the report was gathered by online survey in February 2015, with responses from D&T leaders from 205 academy and authority secondary schools.
Two-thirds of respondents felt that using equipment and software motivates and engages students. Similarly, 68 per cent of respondents felt that using digital content has a ‘great’ impact on motivation and engagement. Additionally, 70 per cent of responders would like more time to be spent on practicals.
