Level 3 Diploma in Fashion & Textiles
Due to eligibility restrictions, potential learners must be UK resident and aged 19 or over to be able to enrol onto this course
Ideally, candidates should have attained Level 2 qualifications (GCSE Grades A to C standard) in Mathematics and English Language. If the applicant does not hold Maths and English Language qualifications, or he/she can demonstrate competence through alternative qualifications, then the applicant will be required to undertake an initial assessment before being accepted on the course. You will be required to complete functional skills alongside your qualification if you have not already achieved GCSE’s at grade C or Functional Skills Level 2.
All applicants will be interviewed by the Course Leader to establish suitability, and to ensure that prospective learners will be able to meet the academic and attendance requirements of the course, and to establish any additional support needs.
Assessment & Achievements
All units are assessed through a variety of methods culminating in the building of a portfolio of evidence containing written assignments, presentations, and other evidence. The portfolio is supported by a number of examinations, which are set and marked by the Awarding Body. Assignments are staged throughout the duration of the course via an Assessment Plan. Portfolio’s are internally assessed and internally moderated by City College Nottingham, and then externally moderated.
Assessment will be a mixture of:
- build and complete a portfolio of work
- practical assessments in treatments
- assignment writing
- theory exams
Length of Course
This course is a full time, taught programme, over 2 days/week for one academic year (ie 3 terms), however, in addition to attendance in class, learners are expected to devote enough additional time as necessary for self-study, research and assignment writing, in order to complete the course successfully.
Detailed timetables will be provided on course commencement
Classes commence in September, November and January (dependent on numbers)
Learners must achieve an attendance record of 85% over the duration of the course. Learners who miss any of their normal timetabled sessions will be expected to attend additional sessions (which may be with a different Tutor), to make up for lost learning hours. Learners who do not meet the attendance requirements will not be allowed to complete final assessment which leads to certification.
