MAW DESIGN SERVICES was established in the early 1990's by Morris Wordsworth as a CAD Consultancy for Autodesk products and later to author, publish, and distribute Courseware for the City & Guilds 4353 (now 7689) Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Parametric Modelling schemes.

To meet the need of Centres, Colleges, and individual learners in preparing for the City & Guilds CAD series of awards, MAW DESIGN SERVICES, through the Autodesk Training Centre at Doncaster College in 1997, first published their bespoke courseware with great success. Since that time, the courseware has kept pace with the changing versions of Autodesk AutoCAD and latterly, Autodesk Inventor, with many Centres, Colleges, and individuals nationwide and abroad taking advantage of the scheme.

All courseware has been designed to follow the City & Guilds Qualification Handbook (Syllabus) helping the learner to gain a qualification in CAD - whichever career path is taken.

Using this training media, the learner will gain the expertise needed for a City & Guilds qualification, and help establish a competitive advantage in today's complex marketplace.

City & Guilds qualifications are a reliable validation of a learner's knowledge and practical skills, and can lead to accelerated professional development, improved productivity, and enhanced credibility in the field of CAD.

City & Guilds awards can help the learner succeed in his/her CAD career - providing benefits to both the learner and employer.

For those learner's not interested in seeking a City & Guilds qualification, the Courseware is also ideal in providing a sound introduction to Autodesk AutoCAD and Autodesk Inventor at various levels.

In 2011, Terry Dovey joined the MAW DESIGN SERVICES team providing update support for the three Autodesk AutoCAD 7579 and 7689 Courseware modules. Morris and Terry were part of the City & Guilds Consultancy team that developed the 7579/7689 scheme of awards.

In April 2015 Terry Dovey took over the management of MAW DESIGN SERVICES.
