NCEA Level 1 Fashion Textiles

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs P. Simmonds

The Year 11 program is a combination of academic technological process along with learning new and refining technical sewing skills. Students are encouraged to work towards a minimum of 14 achievement standard credits with the opportunity to gain more credits for the most dedicated and passionate learners. During the year students will work on multiple projects that may combine a selection of achievement standards and unit standards. Students will be supported to go through a technological process in detail. An external written report based on the students experiences throughout the year will be offered. This will allow the students to gain subject endorsement at merit or excellence.  An individualized program is offered to each student so we can choose a course which fits their desired pathways.

A student will be withdrawn from a standard if the teacher is not confident that the achievement of the standard is within the reach of the student or there is no evidence of the student attempting the assessment.
