To develop a passion for the creative world of Fashion and Textiles ensuring students have a broad range of skills in understanding materials, commercial practices within the industry, how to work with and choose a wide variety of materials to work with whilst manufacturing a range of quality products designed by them. 

Why does Textiles as a subject matter?

It is vital that our students have the opportunity to develop a passion for the more creative subjects and all of the many opportunities it can give them. Textiles will allow them to develop their more creative sides and if they have a passion for interior, fashion, sports, theatre and technical based design they will be able to use this as a spring board for following these varied career paths in the future.

What does Textiles help young people to achieve?

It is a particularly good preparation for A-level Design and Technology (Fashion & Textiles), related level 3 vocational qualifications, A-levels or an apprenticeship in a related area of employment. This qualification prepares learners by developing an in depth knowledge of textile based materials and their practical use within the fashion industry. Learners will also develop valuable transferable skills in teamwork and communication that will be of value to them no matter what career they choose to follow.
