DT Crowdfunder - Equipment List Campaign

DT Equipment Crowdfunder Campaign

From recent communications, you’ll be aware we have successfully secured funding from the Educational Funding Agency Condition Improvement Fund of £1.3m to refurbish our existing DT Block.  90% of that funding will come from the Government but the remainder will be taken out of Tewkesbury School funds, meaning that any cash for new equipment will be severely limited.

Our recent DT campaign raised £20,000 but to fulfil our dream of having the best school’s technology capability in Gloucestershire, we need your help please.

The DT capability has five technologies: textiles, food, Smart Product design, mechanical and electronic engineering and the refurbished block will give the school an exciting opportunity to improve our existing relationships and start new partnerships to the benefit of all parties.

The refurbished DT block will be much more inclusive towards local businesses to actively encourage engagement with our students.  We want to enhance the opportunities for businesses to engage and influence students with careers talks around your business, setting projects, helping with competitions and after school clubs. Our end objective is that this engagement will lead to offers of employment or apprenticeships for our students and you will have first class employee

How can you help?

Much of our equipment is over 50 years old and we need to improve our educational fixtures and fittings.  The list below details the type of equipment we are hoping to procure or borrow.

If you can offer support by providing equipment or would like to find out more information about our proposals, we’d be delighted to arrange an appointment.  Please email Julia Whybrow on: Julia.whybrow@tewkesburyschool.org

Thank you
