Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms S. Baker

Year 11 Textiles Technology

The level 1 course is run over a two year period, introduced at year 10. This ensures students have a sound theoretical knowledge that is embedded in practical applications. 

In year 11 we complete Level 1 NCEA consisting of:

91046 design an item

91047 develop a prototype for a design. 

Three achievement standards are also offer in year 10 so if the student is new in year 11 they will have the opportunity to complete some of these also. They include:

91060 learning sewing techniques and fabric analysis

91058 Sewing a specific item using a commercial pattern

91096 Making adaptions to a commercial pattern


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.

Pathway

Level 2 Soft Materials Technology

This course could lead into costume design, textile manufacturing, pattern cutter or designer

Recommended Prior Learning

It is recommended students take year 10 textiles to ensure they have the required depth of knowledge and practical skills.
