Unpacking the Design Process
Unpacking the Design Process workshop has been developed with Level 3 vocational learners in mind (BTEC and UAL Diploma). It is also suited to Foundation (Level 3 to 4) learners or relevant A-Level subjects.
This 2 hour workshop has been created to meet the needs of Level 3 and 4 vocational learners studying design related courses. The workshop provides an insight into a professional design process working across multidisciplinary platforms. Drawing on the Design Museums exhibitions and collections the students will unpack the process of design by understanding the brief, relevant research and analysis, problem solving, communication and evaluation.

Tutors wishing to bring a Level 2 vocational group may wish to compare the offer provided to schools, Hands on Design workshops. They are encouraged to discuss their expectations and intended learning outcomes before booking an Unpacking the Design Process workshop, so that the content level may be differentiated as required.
We ask that one tutor is present for every ten students. Please note that failure to comply with this request may result in admission being refused.
