GCSE Design and Technology NEA Front Sheet for AQA This A3 frontsheet is used in the front of student folders to track progress through the NEA coursework.

There are explanations of similar tasks on my YouTube channel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pAVXNGd_MLE&t=204s
Three sheets to assist students in compiling information to then produce the Design Brief & Specification sheet for their GCSE NEA. I use these over a couple of lessons to allow students to gather the information to produce a high quality Specification and Design Brief nea sheet. The various exam boards do not allow providing frameworks for writing, however, I personally feel that if these are not given to students electronically but write on these sheets as they research in each area then use the booklet to compile the NEA sheets in their own style.
