Course outline:

Textiles can be misrepresented in the design and technology curriculum. This workshop will explore why all students need to develop a much better understanding of textiles and how teachers can achieve this.

By adopting a structured and creative approach in year 7, issues of continuity and progression can be addressed so that the core knowledge required for the new D&T GCSE can be delivered. This will enable students at KS4 to work in a much more creative and independent manner. They will gain a better understanding about how textiles can be used, either on their own or in combination with other materials, in order to design and make contemporary products at GCSE and beyond.

The relevance of textiles to other industries and professions will be explored in order to provide teachers with up to date information on career opportunities, both within the textiles and fashion industry and beyond.
