BTEC Level 3 90 Credit Diploma in Fashion and Clothing at Kingston College

Course description

This course will enable students to explore the different areas of the fashion, textiles and clothing industry, equipping them with practical and vocational skills, as well as develop their academic and creative potential. This course is based in Anstee House in central Kingston which has been designed for the needs of Fashion & Textiles students. This facility benefits from a spacious pattern cutting and garment construction studios alongside the latest industrial machinery.

The 90 Credit qualification is a one year full-time course and is equivalent to 1.5 A-levels. The natural progression on successful completion is into a second year for completion of a full Extended Diploma; the Extended Diploma is equivalent to three A-levels. Some mature students however may choose to progress from the 90 Credit one year course directly into employment or alternative training.

It will teach you practical and creative skills including pattern cutting, garment construction and visualisation techniques. Work is selected for our Fashion Show in June.
