This Level 1 Award in Fashion and Textiles is the ideal starting point for anyone with an interest in fashion and textiles that would like to pursue a career in the industry in future but doesn't meet the entry requirements of our Level 3 qualification.

You'll develop the basic skills and knowledge required to progress onto further study and will have the chance to work across a range of materials and disciplines, developing your practical and analytical skills in areas such drawing, research, fashion design and construction.

You'll focus on developing your own creative potential and learn how to use your skills to find innovative solutions to a number of fashion and textile problems ahead of progressing onto our Level 2 Pattern Cutting or Level 3 Fashion and Textiles qualifications.

There are no formal entry requirements for this qualification, however, applicants are expected to possess a keen interest in the fashion and textiles industry.

You'll be assessed through a portfolio of samples which you will develop throughout the course.

Upon successful completion of this qualification, you'll be able to progress onto our Level 2 Pattern Cutting qualification.
