Website Updates

A belated happy new year to everyone for our first blog for 2022!

We’ve been quiet recently as we’ve been busy working on updating our main Boyd Education website, as well as producing a new one called BoydCreate

Our Boyd Education main website will continue to focus on teaching and learning in D&T, as well as curriculum planning, and the new BoydCreate website will be our ‘shop’, as well where course bookings are processed. 

The Boyd Education and BoydCreate websites are linked together, and in most cases you won’t notice a lot of difference when using the website, but this set up gives us more functionality and should make the admin side of things easier for both ourselves and anyone using the sites. In particular we’re hoping it might make it easier for people to find our free downloads which we hope to continue to develop. 

We’ve been doing lots of tests of the new systems but the real test will be when they start being used so if you come across any niggles or things that don’t work let us know.

At the moment there’s still lots to do on both websites, especially BoydCreate where we’ll be uploading lots more resources over the coming weeks.

Competition Prize Giving

L DSCF3663 2

Before Christmas it was a real pleasure to present the Product in a Tin competition prizes to Hannah from Wirral Grammar School for Girls. Huge thanks to Coles Sewing Centre, Husqvarna Viking (UK & Eire) for sponsoring the Jade20 sewing machine prize and Mindsets (UK) Ltd for sponsoring the class set of Crumble kits. Hannah also got a selection of design related prizes of her own and a gift voucher.

NOTE THAT THIS COMPETITION IS NO LONGER RUNNING but resources are still on the website and can be used as a module of work.

Courses for the Spring Term

Boyd Education spring term courses 3

We've just released new dates in our course calendar for our curriculum planning course, as well as our course for textiles specialists looking for support to deliver the D&T GCSE core content. Both of these are blended learning courses with a 2 hour live online session (which includes practical activities and material samples) along with a programme of self directed study. 

We also have a face to face sewing machine maintenance course coming up in Nottingham in a few weeks and hope to release dates in the next week for this course to run in Liverpool and London.
