Course Content

This is a classroom-based, workshop-style, learning experience where you will build upon and consolidate your prior knowledge by working on a self-chosen, individual textile project which will grow your skills step by step.

During the course you will observe tutor demonstrations and explanations of techniques and processes which support and meet individual needs.

Some of the areas covered may include:

  • Overlocker skills
  • Sewing machine skills
  • Sewing techniques
  • Construction processes, techniques and methods requested by learners

Tutor demonstration, advice, guidance and practical support will be given throughout the session.

You will need to bring fabric, threads, haberdashery.

The tutor will talk with you, and answer any questions you may have, at the induction session.

There are sewing machines and some sewing equipment for your use at the centre, scissors, pins, etc.

However, you may wish to bring your own sewing tools and equipment. If you wish to bring your own sewing machinery and is more than 1 year old, it must hold a current PAT test certificate. The tutor will need to see evidence.

Assessment Method

This course uses RARPA as its method of assessment.

RARPA stands for Recognising and Recording Progress and Achievement which is the process of assessment for non-accredited learning. It is a means of validating the outcomes of programmes which do not result in qualifications. RARPA is a five-stage process which measures and records learners’ progress, achievements and attendance.

Where can it lead?

You may wish to progress to the next step Intermediate course, entitled Progress your Sewing Skills, to further your skills or you may enrol on a sewing workshop to learn specific techniques and processes.

We offer a range of sewing and creative courses which can assist you in developing your own skills and interests.

As a Hull Training and Adult Education learner you have access to our Careers Advice Service. Our advisers are on hand to guide you through options and support you to achieve your full potential. Ask your tutor to refer you, if required.
