Pre-order Items

Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario – the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4248)
"The resource has a very good project format, it is comprehensive and detailed which will enable teachers of any level of experience to use it as it stands, adapt it to suit a different context, or use it as a template for other projects within their department schemes of work, but the real strength is the format of the test being similar to GCSE and therefore a good preparation project." J Jordan, Resistant Materials teacher & Independent Reviewer
"A well structured project which covers an introdcution to GCSE R.M projects and comprehesivly covers a variety of joining techniques in wood and associated processes." A Foreman, DT teacher & Independent Reviewer
"This resource is an ideal introduction to GCSE. It does provide students with a much better experience of Resistant Materials than other NC projects that are currently in place...Covered many technical practical aspects of Resistant Materials." J Martlew, DT Teacher & Independent Reviewer
"A clear resource set out simply that would sit nicely with key stage 4 progression...Very easy to read and understand the process of making. It would build into a valuable resource of tracking students projects and homework, all contained in the one booklet" K Simpson, Head of DT & Independent Reviewer
"Good support material for a teacher lead lesson. The assessment opportunities are it's strength."T Harris, Head of DT & Independent Reviewer
