BTEC Level 3 in Fashion and Clothing
One or two years
You will need either:
Four GSCEs at Grade C or above (including English), or a Merit in a Level 2 in Art and Design (including GCSE English at Grade C or above).
You will also need a portfolio of artwork demonstrating your ability in Art and Design.
If you are coming for an interview for any of the courses in Art, Design, Photography and Fashion, you will need to bring with you a portfolio of work that demonstrates your creativity, enthusiasm and shows the skills you have already developed. This portfolio could include GCSE coursework and work you do in your own time. During your interview we will look through your portfolio so we can help you join the course that is right for you.
This creative and highly practical course is essential if you wish to pursue a career in the world of fashion and will give you a realistic view of the demands of working in this exciting and highly competitive industry. Project work will enable you to develop skills in fashion and textile design, illustration, and pattern and garment construction, and you’ll be encouraged to study the work of leading fashion designers, textile designers and artists, both historical and contemporary, to inspire and influence your own work. Year 1 will give you a basic grounding in essential skills and industry specific techniques, while Year 2 will allow you to follow your personal interests, while receiving guidance in your application for Higher Education or employment. This will culminate in you writing and completing a major project and displaying your work at a final show. Throughout you’ll receive strong personal tutorial support and be encouraged to develop your literacy and communication skills.
There will be an opportunity for you to take GCSE Maths if you do not already have a grade C in this subject.
Foundation course in Art and Design, HND, FdA or Degree in Fashion or related areas or employment.
