Learning Outcomes


The student must demonstrate an understanding of all elements of the competencies in order to be deemed competent. Assessment methods have been designed to measure achievement of each competency in a flexible manner over a range of assessment tasks. Students will be assessed by written reports, observation and a classroom based practical activity. Students are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment work to their teacher to ensure that the relevant competency standards are being met


Details of Learning Activities

In this course you will be involved in theoretical and practical tasks.
You will develop the skill to -
• measure and assess fit requirement
• develop patterns from a base size block
• determine and Interpret design lines and features
• create, check and test patterns
• standard operation procedures to label and identify final pattern components
• maintain accurate records though development of student notes and course hand outs
• Use trade sketches to identify information and finalise pattern specification sheets
•recording and reporting practices
•You will be expected to attend, participate and complete each progressive task to the required standard, to be eligible to be assessed and to continue with the next task.
• As well as class activities you will be required to undertake research and assessment practise outside of regular class times.
• You are reminded of the learning expectation that you will complete an equal amount of research time outside of class as you do in class to demonstrate your understanding and to be deemed competent in this course.
