Year 10

Term 1 
Students strengthen their knowledge of practical techniques  by compiling and documenting a sample book of the most common construction and decorative techniques used in the textiles industry.  Students gain an understanding of the manufacture process by making a product from a commercial pattern. Further strengthening their practical ability and knowledge of tools/equipment and suitability of materials.

Term 2
Students complete a mock controlled assessment project to gain an understanding of standards required for coursework in year 11.

Term 3
Students are introduced to Textiles theory to build a foundation of knowledge which they will later require for their GCSE exam.

Year 11

The majority of Year 11 will be focused on the controlled assessment unit. This is a design and make activity where the students will demonstrate their skills, knowledge and understanding of textiles by designing and making a high quality product.

Term 1
Students will be introduced to their coursework unit based on a given design brief. Students carry out an analysis of their chosen design brief. Detailed research and analysis is undertaken in order to help the students to gather information to help them to design and write a design specification.

The students will use the information gather in their research and design a range of possible solutions to their chosen design problem. The students present their work in an A3 format using a range of different design and presentation techniques. At the end of the design ideas section the students evaluate each idea to identify the best design to develop into a final design solution.

Term 2
Students develop their chosen design into a final realised solution. Testing, modelling and experimentation are required in order to achieve a final design. Presentation drawings of the final design are produced detailing materials, processes and sizes. Every detail of the final design must be thoroughly considered and tested. A detailed production plan is produced alongside a cutting list of materials needed for the manufacturing process.
This whole term is dedicated to the manufacture of the designed and planned product. Students have approximately 16 hours to produce their final piece of practical work. During this time students are expected to produce a “Diary of manufacture” to evidence the making of their product.

Term 3
Final testing and evaluation of the finished products carried out. Work is presented in the final folder for submission for final assessment. Structured time for revision and past exam paper exercises.
