Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms S. Baker

Year 11 Textiles Technology

The level 1 course is run over a two year period. An introduction at year 10 allows students to learn about concepts, techniques and practise skills.

At year 11, assessment of at least 16cr (chosen by the students) will occur. The two year learning program ensures students have a sound theoretical knowledge that is embedded in practical applications. 

In year 11 students will have the opportunity to complete Level 1 NCEA by choosing from the range of options below:

91046 Use design ideas to produce a conceptual design for an outcome to address a brief  (6 credits internal)

91047 Undertake development to make a prototype to address a brief (6credits internal)

91060 Demonstrate understanding of basic concepts used to make products from textile materials (4 credits internal)

91058 Implement basic procedures using textile materials to make a specified product (6 credits internal)

91096 Make basic adaptations to a pattern to enable a design to fit a person or item (4 credits internal)

91044  Undertake brief development to address a need or opportunity (4 credits internal)

91063 Produce freehand sketches to communicate own design ideas (3 credits external)

Course Overview

Term 1
91046 - design

Term 2
91047 - prototyping

Term 3
91053 - external researching designers and design principles
OR
91058 and 91096 as a catch up for students who did not complete the year 10 textiles course

Term 4
91060
These last three standards are completed in year 10 but can be caught up in this time if they were not completed.
If students have completed all standards there is the opportunity to begin the level 2 course now.
