Learning Outcomes


On successful completion of this course you will have developed and applied the skills and knowledge required to demonstrate competency in the above elements.


Details of Learning Activities

Integrated learning consisting of theory and practical components carried out in practical workshops, In a simulated workplace environment, in the skills and knowledge required to develop a custom-made footwear product.


Teaching Schedule

Student will participate in practical workshops to identify materials used in footwear production and will be conducted in conjunction with other practical based learning.

Workshops will include identifying and working with a wide range of materials used in footwear production. Students will be required to demonstrate their knowledge and practical skills required to Identify materials used in footwear production.

Learning will include identifying,  using & working with a range of materials and components used in footwear manufacture. Including identifying faults in materials and appropriate way to prevent or rectify quality issues with finished product.

Included in the learning program students will be identifying appropriate suppliers of materials and where appropriate participate in Industry visits, either on or off campus.

Identifying materials used in footwear production will be carried out during the development of the Court, Derby, and Oxford style of shoes:
Week 1-9 Development of Court Shoe - 1Pair
Week 5-12 Development of Derby Shoe - 1Pair
Week 11-16 Development of Oxford Shoe - 1Pair

Overview of Assessment

Assessment is ongoing throughout the semester and will consist of both theory and practical based exercises, predominantly in class but some out of class research and information formatting is required as well. Feedback will be provided throughout the semester on all assessment tasks.

All assessment tasks must be completed before competency can be achieved. Tasks that have not be authenticated in class as the student’s own work will not be considered for assessment. Regular attendance is encouraged.

If you have a long term medical condition and/or disability it may be possible to negotiate to vary aspects of the learning or assessment methods. You can contact the program coordinator or the Disability Liaison Unit if you would like to find out more.

Your course assessment conforms to RMIT assessment principles, regulations, policies, procedures and instructions which are available for review online: http://www.rmit.edu.au/students/assessment


Assessment Tasks

Student will demonstrate and answer relevant questions regarding the knowledge and skills required to identify materials used in footwear production to a competent standard.

Student are to submit for assessment one pair of Derby, and one pair of Oxford style of shoes, as well as a classroom based assessment.

Shoes are to be produced to a required industry standard. Included in the production of these shoes, students will be assessed on how they correctly identify & use materials used in their footwear production.

Assessment One: Week 4     Classroom based assessment

Assessment Two: Due Week 12       One pair of Derby styled Shoes.

Assessment Three: Due Week 16    One pair of Oxford styled Shoes.
