More course information

If you are interested in fashion and textiles, this course is for you. You will develop creative skills through fashion design, pattern cutting, illustration, garment construction, ideas, and concepts. Many of our fashion students have gained national and international recognition through success in competitions. Projects that you will be working on will give you a broad range of experiences including womenswear, menswear, sportswear, theatrical costume and accessories.

You will learn how to take a design from concept through to a completed garment. At the end of each year your final project will give you the chance to design your own creation which will be displayed at the end of Year Art Show.

The course has the equivalent value of 3 full A-levels and is recognised by universities and employers. You can achieve a Pass, Merit or Distinction for your overall final grade. The course is taught through combined core and specialist teaching that builds on a wide range of creative skills dealing with materials techniques and processes to equip students to progress to either higher education degree programmes in their specialism or to apprenticeships and employment in the creative industries.

You will study:

* Research Skills & Design Development
* Pattern Cutting & Garment Construction
* Fashion Illustration
* Materials, Processes & Technical Skills
* Preparation for Progression

At the end of both Year One and Year Two, work is exhibited at the annual Art Show where your creative work is viewed by the public, press, family and friends.
