Textiles (Design & Technology) AS/A2 at Sir Frederic Osborn School
This course appeals to students who
have a keen interest in working with
Textiles, fibres and fabrics and developing skills
in Fashion and Design. You will study two units in Year 12 and
two in Year 13. One unit is based around the knowledge and
understanding of product design and materials and components
and the other unit is a coursework project and design folder.
Assessment for both AS and A2 is through a two hour written
examination which is equal to 50% of your marks. The other 50%
comes from your coursework project and practical work.
All students should be prepared and equipped for a significant
amount of practical work throughout the course.
Throughout the course you will demonstrate high level making
skills showing precise attention to detail in the manufacture of
high quality textile products. Students could progress to studying
Textiles at degree level or may wish to pursue a foundation course
in Art before progressing to a degree in fashion and design. There
are many possible career routes such as fashion design, interior
design, fashion merchandising and buying.
