NCEA Level 2 Textiles Technology

12TTT
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr N. Sandes

The main focus of study at this level is to explore fabrics and textiles in the fashion industry. Students will focus on designing and constructing a 'Streetwear' garment that includes special features such as a lining or an applied design such as screen printing or machine embroidery. During the course students will be required to carry out the design process in order to make decisions about garments that they or their client would like to construct and wear. The basics of fashion drawing, research and evaluation will be an integral part of their work. Up to 20 credits are available from a selection of Achievement Standards.

NCEA Level 3 Textiles Technology

Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

$40 for materials such as toile fabric and interfacings which are provided by the school. Students must also provide their own fabric for their chosen garments. This is usually $40-$50 per garment. Because there is a choice of design and fabric, this cost can be reduced. Stationery costs are additional.


Recommended Prior Learning

Have a keen interest in Fashion and Textiles and be able to demonstrate basic construction skills.
