What is a design and technology course?

Posted March 1656, 2022 by admin & filed under Distance Learning Plus News.

Design and technology require a creative mind to brainstorm ideas of how to design something. It can be really difficult and challenging for some people who haven’t got a naturally creative mind. If you are up for a challenge then this is the course for you.

Design and technology courses are really unique courses to take, it requires a creative and open mind to think of ideas and projects within the course, not only does it cover knowledge-based learning but it provides practical assignments that will need to be assessed upon completing your course. This course is great for students who have creative minds and want to explore that further into their upcoming career by advancing their design knowledge and skills on the way.


You will be required to have active thinking and be able to complete projects that are set for you, as the design and technology course is typically course work based due to the amount of practical work that is required. You are able to complete the design and technology course online through a secure portal called (VLE) Virtual Learning Environment which enables you to access all of the lessons that you will require for your course, buy taking the course online you will need to design a digital portfolio of your work that has been completed so that at the end you will be able to submit everything that you have done upon completion of your course.

Not only can you study from the comfort of your home but you can study anywhere that has an internet connection.

Studying independently without physical supervision from someone or something external creates a huge potential to lose focus or drift off into something more ‘pleasurable’ (of course, some people do find studying pleasurable or fulfilling, too). Some people will see challenges along the way However, one of the biggest benefits that distance learning courses bring is that you are able to learn self-discipline which can really help you in the future. If you don’t have self-discipline then studying a distance learning course may become a challenge for you, if you don’t manage your priorities and time.

Once you have decided to enroll in a Business and commerce course you will be given the option to either pay for the course in full or take advantage of our monthly installments which are sometimes more suitable for students financially as it makes it more affordable. Once you have enrolled you will receive your login details to the VLE within 10 minutes of your enrolment time.
