This practical course explores the use of traditional materials, techniques and processes to communicate and demonstrate your individual ideas.

It can be used to explore fashion, interior or fine art textiles. You will get the opportunity to use a variety of materials and techniques including print, knit, weave, structure and natural fibres.

Applicants with predicted GCSE grades 1 or 2 points below the entry requirement for an A Level:

If your predicted grades do not meet the entry requirements for either 1 or 2 of your chosen A Level subject choices, don’t worry we will still make you a conditional offer. We advise that you think about a second choice of course as a back-up plan. You can meet with us for a supportive, friendly and impartial discussion to look at other courses that Nottingham College has to offer. For more information contact High Pavement Sixth Form admissions by telephone on 0115 9100 100 or email at

Applicants who choose 4 subjects but only have the entry requirements to study 3:

If your predicted grades do not meet the entry requirements to study 4 A Level subjects, don’t worry we will still make you a conditional offer for all 4. At your ‘Get Ready for College’ day you will undertake tasters in your subjects and at this point you can discuss your options with subject staff at the event, to help you finalise your subject choices. Final A Level choices however will be made at enrolment in August when your GCSE results are confirmed.


Assessment is a combination of examinations and coursework, including a personal investigation with a 3,000 word study and a controlled assignment (15-hour exam).


You could choose to move on to a related higher education course such as fashion design, pattern cutting or fashion business. You could be working towards a career as a fashion designer or garment technologist.
