There are a wide range of career pathways anduniversity courses linked to these subjects. Theskills that you will develop are transferableand very benecial for a student who wants todevelop essential 21st Century skills:independence, critical thinking, inquiry,research, analytical, innovation, problem-solving and much more. 4. COURSE STRUCTURES 5. Youwill design and make. Time on the course is spent being experimental, creative and developing practical skills and specialist subject knowledge. Excellent resources support you on the vle. Courseworkconsists of a 20 page A3/A4 portfolio or an e-portfolio worth 60%. The written exam is worth 40%.is assessed internally. Continuous internal Portfolio assessment, support and guidance throughout the course. 6. SPECIALISMSFoodNutrition or Catering students - will work withfood.Textile Technology students- will work predominantly withfabrics and fashion trimmings.

GCSETextiles and GCSE Product Design particularly compliments students taking GCSE Art, Drama, Media, Science and IT. 8. GCSE FOODNUTRITION GCSE CATERINGGCSE TEXTILE TECHNOLOGYGCSE PRODUCT DESIGN Are not more difcult than other GCSE s 9. Some COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS 10. A GCSE in any of the DT courses is more difcult than other GCSE courses. FALSE: The effort and work involved is equal to other courses. You are assessed internally by your teachers so you can improve your grade during the course. GCSE Food and GCSE Textiles are just for girls to study. FALSE: Both courses are for boys and girls. Look at how many successful male designers, technologists and master chefs there are. Youneed to be good at drawing and illustrating to do Textiles? FALSE: You will develop these skills on the course and can use computers to assist you with gure templates. 11. Ineed specialist equipment at home to do Textiles, Food or Product Design FALSE: You will complete all your practical work in school so you do not need any specialist equipment at home. Ican decide what I want to make for my portfolio project. TRUE: You decide on the nal product you will design and make. Itis not worth doing Textiles or Food if you have no interest in being a chef or designer. FALSE: This course will provide you with a wide range of valuable and transferable 21st Century skills that can be applied and used throughout life while studying at university and entering a career in any pathway. 12. I can take both GCSE Art and GCSE Textiles. TRUE: They compliment each other very well and taking both will prepare you excellently for an art and fashion design based route later on. Itis not worth doing GCSE Textiles if I am doing GCSE Art. FALSE: Textiles enables students to work with 3D with fabrics. Students learn about the characteristics of different fabrics creating garments and accessories. Ican work with Textiles or Food if I do the DT Product Design course. FALSE: You may use the materials in small quantities but you won t specialise in Food or Textiles. To specialise you need to do GCSE Textiles or GCSE Food. 13. Following GCSE, you can study DT through two pathways in Year 1213: - an International Baccalaureate route with Group 4Experimental Sciences and take IB DT: working through the lensof Textiles, Human Factors, CADCAM or Food at Standard or Higher levelor- an Advanced Diploma route with BTEC Level 3 Art Design: the course incorporates FashionClothing, 3D Product Design and Fine Art at Subsidiary Diploma or Diploma level. 14.
