City of Liverpool College University Centre has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
The programme has a strong emphasis on developing practical skills alongside specialist knowledge and understanding to meet the needs of the sector. BTEC Higher Nationals are recognised by employers as providing students with the key concepts and practical skills for direct progression to either Higher Education or employment within the fashion industry. Students will have the opportunity to master the essential techniques for their chosen pathway and develop their higher level skills in fashion. A fundamental aspect of the student’s development is educational visits which enhance the course experience and underpin all assignments. Guest lectures are also incorporated into the curriculum to enhance the student’s understanding of professional practice and previous guest lectures have included acclaimed curators, marketing and PR representatives and specialist practitioners. This programme produces graduates skilled in a broad range of specialist areas. Students who achieve their BTEC Level 4 HNC can progress to the BTEC Level 5 HND specialism and potentially progress to either a further degree programme or employment.
Modules covered: Semester 1: • Computer Aided Design (CAD) • Contextual Studies • Individual Project • Techniques and Processes. Semester 2: • Professional Development • Fashion & Textile Practices • Pattern Cutting and Garment Making • Fashion Collection.
The programme is assessed through a combination of written essays, research portfolios, image presentations and evaluations, which support the practical assessments throughout the course. Formative feedback supports student progression in both written and practical. Self and peer assessment in convener/critique situations is an essential element of all projects and the feedback from these will enhance student achievement and progression.
