Chapter 8 provides an insight into the turbulent and recently disappointing events in the history of Design and Technology (D&T) teacher-training in England over the past 150 years. It is a complex journey that needs to include a review of the generic history of teacher-training in England, the differing educational needs of children, the changing role of D&T as a school curriculum subject, the requirements for an appropriately trained workforce to meet the economic needs of the country, and how various Government educational initiatives and interventions have affected how teachers in general and D&T teachers in particular have been and still are, trained today. All these factors are inseparably entwinned. Therefore, this chapter discusses them all together in chronological date order.
