Accredited Skills stage 2 in Textiles/Fashion.

City & Guilds Accredited Skills stage 2 in Textiles/Fashion.

The School offers students a City & Guild Accredited qualification in Skills Stage 2.  Consisting of 3 modules this is a 100-hour course (50 hours in the classroom and 50 hours at home) which involves creating a well-produced garment and understanding the use of Fabrics, Textile Design and sewing techniques.  On completion of the course which would run for 5 hours 1 day a week for 10 weeks the practical work would be assessed by Janet Robinson and Julie Gallagher and then sent for final assessment, internal qualification assurance and certification to Partner College the School of Stitched Textiles www.sofst.org  in Lancashire.  Students, if successful, would then be awarded their certificate, issued by the School of Stitched Textiles.

The course would be available to all levels of applicant, from the age of 14 years if you are hoping to improve your portfolio.  Machinists already employed within the fashion industry and wish to achieve qualifications for their skill:  Mature applicants who have maybe had family and now wish to improve their career prospects:  Also apprenticeship training may be offered under the government funding scheme, this is something to be looked at in the future.  It is believed that offering the qualification to a diverse range of applicants would initiate an interesting and positive dimension within the classroom – those already with experience would benefit by sharing their knowledge to those without previous experience.

The course once completed successfully by each individual student carries a certificate for Skills Stage 2 and acceptance into study for Skills Stage 3.

Skills Stage 3 Accredited course is the next progression.  With success of these levels, it is hoped to proceed to Stage 4 and then to offer Master Practitioner training.
