It was a new dawn twenty years ago for technical education in Scotland. In 1987, by official memorandum, technical teachers became teachers of technology. A radically revised curriculum designed to reflect advances in computing and to attract a wider range of pupils replaced the familiar subjects of Technical Drawing, Woodwork and Metalwork with Graphic Communication and Craft & Design. And a new honours course of B Technology Ed enrolled women students in what had traditionally been a man's world.
