David Needham

Head of Art and Design, DT Teacher

Masters, PGCE

Throughout my teaching career since 2006 I have been a teacher of Design & Technology and Head of Department. I have taught in both state comprehensive and state grammar schools in the UK and independent schools in Dubai UAE. I have experience in teaching Resistant Materials, Systems & Control, Electronics and Food Technology within the subject from Year 7 to Year 13.

Having spent all of my non-teaching career in engineering, I am passionate about the positive contribution Science and Engineering makes to our modern society and constantly endevour to instill the same sense of purpose in the students I teach. Having that sense of purpose while making the process of design and making fun is key to engaging young people in what is a very worthwhile subject.

I originally trained as a Mechanical Engineering moving into Electrical and Electronic Engineering in the Energy Sector which has allowed me to work both in the UK and overseas. I studied for a PGCE in Design & Technology at Greenwich University in London and also hold a Masters Degree in Business from Sheffield Hallam University in the UK.

As a teacher much of my spare time has been taken with school related activities such as running a Kart Club and after school sessions for students and parents. I also enjoy walking and the occasional round of golf.
