HC Deb 18 December 1989 vol 164 cc44-5W
Dr. Reid

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science if it is his intention to bring craft and design education into the curriculum for Scottish schools; and whether he will draw up plans to ensure that design and technical subjects are part of the curriculum by 1992.

Mr. Lang

I have been asked to reply.

Craft and design technical subjects already feature in the curriculum of Scottish schools. Courses are available leading to awards at the ordinary, standard and higher grades of the Scottish Certificate of Education. A review of the primary and early secondary curriculum is currently under way to identify and give guidance on good practice. Craft and design and technical subjects will be covered in this review.
