    My three applications for SD D&T are unsuccessful. I had two interviews at two schools and one uni interview and one school told me out right that I am unsuccessful. I was told that I need to gain more experience of making and improving technical skills, particularly for resistant materials.

    I plan to reapply again at the end of the year and improve myself in the meantime. I was thinking along the lines of:


    • Doing woodworking projects after work in the workshops (I am currently a TA).
    • Doing a diploma evening class in carpentry/joinery (doesn't start till Sept).
    • Asking the interviewer for project examples to do.


    Does anyone have any other suggestions please?

    Thanks
