Analysis of the data has made possible comparison of the effects of course length and structure on the perceptions of changes to design and technology practice in the schools which were surveyed. The paper will explore the emerging patterns in these changes and suggest ways in which the findings may influence the planning and delivery of future courses and the nature of In-service provision for design and technology.
