Paul Woodward

Curriculum Consultant


Paul has been teaching D&T for almost 30 years with most of those years as a Head of Creative Arts Faculties or as Head of D&T. Following a degree in 3D design, Paul initially trained for the Post 16 sector, so he has extensive experience of teaching A Level D&T, but he has taught the subject from KS2 onwards in a wide variety of schools ranging from Pupil Referral Units to prestigious International Boarding schools. Paul’s MA is in Education specialising in Professional Development in Teaching and Learning which naturally led to an interest in education training. He has worked as a consultant, resource developer, and course designer alongside his industry and teaching roles.

Paul has expertise in 3D CAD as well as digital illustration and 3D visualisation. He has written and illustrated over 30 children’s picture books, illustrated online websites and created designs for numerous private clients. He has also worked in industry in roles that have included heading a furniture design studio, designing luxury motorhomes and designing the User Interface and Icons for Caligari Corporation and Microsoft’s flagship CAD program. He joined us from a role overseas at Rugby School Thailand where he joined to help develop the Art and D&T departments. While at Rugby, he was accredited as the Programme Leader for the Cambridge International Professional Development Qualification in Teaching and Learning and established the school as an International Professional Development Centre, one of the first of its kind in Thailand.

He now works for the Association as a Curriculum Consultant; a new role that involves digital and face to face training, resource development, writing articles, consultancy services and much more. Since joining the Association, Paul has developed and delivered a successful D&T training program for the Pioneers Partnership SCITT and is looking forward to helping train a new generation of D&T teachers in the coming years.
