The majority of secondary school engineering education is delivered within Design and Technology. There is a misalignment between the background subject knowledge of these teachers and the subject knowledge of engineering. This paper presents key findings from the London Schools Excellence Fund Reference: LSEFR1210 study where teachers have difficulties in utilising science and math-based resources. This has implications for pupils’ receiving a desirable engineering education in school, which may be a factor in the number of pupils choosing to study engineering and technology beyond compulsory education.
