GRAHAM SCHOOL IS PART OF

Design Technology: Textiles

GCSE Design Technology: Textiles

Coursework 40%

Controlled Assessment 60%

Led by: Mrs E Millican

This course, Art and Design and the Graphics course are based on the same GCSE. Only one choice can be made between them. They cannot be taken together.

Exam Board: AQA

What will I be studying?

Students will immerse themselves in decorative and functional textiles by exploring the subject in two parts. You will produce a portfolio of Controlled Assessment work; this will add up to 60% of your overall grade. In the Spring Term of Year 11 you will undertake an Externally Set Task, which is worth 40% of your GC SE grade. This course allows students who have the ability to be creative and experimental with textiles, to combine this with mixed media and produce a range of textiles outcome suitable for fashion, interiors or costume. We will investigate thoroughly a range of skills, the work of others and create a personal response.

What can I do afterwards?

With a GCSE in Textile design students can show that they have the practical skills and technical understanding to progress further in subjects such as fashion, accessories design, fabric styling, visual merchandiser, stylist, teacher and generally any job requiring a practically skilled individual.
