Regardless of the mode of delivery, represent a guide to the relative teaching time and student effort required to successfully achieve a particular competency/module. This may include not only scheduled classes or workplace visits but also the amount of effort required to undertake, evaluate and complete all assessment requirements, including any non-classroom activities.
Pre-requisites and Co-requisites
Students must complete the following courses before undertaking this unit
VART 5905C Use of colour in textiles
VART 5903C Textile design influences
VART 5904C Development of textile designs
VART 5909C Present textile design concept
This unit is delivered concurrently with elective production units
VART 5914C Design and Produce Knitted Products
VART 5916C Design and Produce Woven Products
MANU 7226C Design and Produce Printed Textiles
VART 5905C Develop Textile Designs Using Computer Based Programs
This unit covers the skills and knowledge associated with developing textile designs and specifications for production and the testing and analysis associated with developing design specifications.
Textile material and products for which product specifications are developed in the textile sector include fibres, fabrics, yarns and finished products.

Overview of Assessment
To achieve successful completion of this course students must demonstrate an understanding of all elements of competency.
Assessment tasks have been designed to measure achievement of each competency in a flexible manner.
Assessment will incorporate a variety of methods including:
* Submission and presentation of Project Briefs and Folios
* Technical folders and documentation
* Oral presentations
Details of Assessment will be provided with project biref in class sessions
Students will be awarded a grade only if competency has been demonstrated within the standard enrolment period on the first assessment attempt.
Units assessed as ‘not yet competent’ on a first assessment attempt and ‘competent’ on a second or subsequent attempt are to have results amended to competent but are not eligible for grading.
Students are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment work to their teacher.
All work must be submitted by the due date.
Late submissions will not be graded higher than a PASS.
Students will undertake major design project will include;
A design folio containing the following
Concept board and design research
A range of coordinate designs into a market sector
Selected designs translated into textile samples
Technical file containing a range of samples detailed specification sheets
Textile testing results
A detailed Proejct brief will be provided in class
You will undertake 2 Design Briefs.
Each submission will inlcude the following :
Design Project 1 Collection 70%
Design Folio - Details are provided in the design brief of submssion items and assessment breakdown
The following will be assessd in your elective classes. You must achieve competency in each to be graded in this unit
