About Level 1/2 Award Fashion and Textiles 3720 Syllabus

These vocational qualifications fulfil entry requirements for academic and vocational study post-16, and will count as equivalent to one GCSE in the Key Stage 4 performance tables.

Who is this Level 1/2 Award in Fashion and Textiles for?

This qualification is designed for 14–16 year olds who want to study fashion and textiles in a hands on, practical way that helps them develop the knowledge, skills and experience that could open the door to a career in the industry.

What will learners study?

Learners complete three mandatory units (one externally assessed and two internally assessed) across 120 guided learning hours.

Unit 1: Skills demonstration (internally assessed)

Learners will carry out a number of bite-sized projects to demonstrate their competence in the 8 core skills. This will include the transferable skill of teamwork and one of the mini projects should allow for this. As part of this learners will draw on knowledge of the relevant techniques and how to select the most appropriate for the project they are undertaking. Learners will produce a series of small made outcomes and record their work in a portfolio of no more than 15 pages. This should include reflection on how they have applied the associated knowledge.

Unit 2: Extended making project (internally assessed)

Learners will undertake an extended project that showcases the skills they have developed in unit 1 and knowledge they have developed through unit 3. The project will be in response to a brief, examples of which are included in Unit 2: Extended making project. Learners will develop skills, knowledge and understanding in planning and development, making, testing and evaluation and communication.

Unit 3: Fundamentals of fashion and textiles (externally assessed)
