NCFE Award in Creative Crafts Level 1
No entry requirements. You will be required to complete a work book, and so must be able to complete written work as well as practical element of the course.
Due to funding rules, you may only enrol on ONE NCFE course for level 1 in each academic year.
|Teaching & assessment||
The NCFE Award Creative Crafts Level 1 consists of 3 modules:
Completing the level 1 course will give you sound a basis for further learning in your chosen craft area. Assessment is ongoing,and you will receive verbal and written formative feedback as the course progresses.
By attending the course you will have increased your knowledge, skills and understanding to help you move on and take up further opportunities open to you.
Your tutor will discuss progression opportunities with you at the final session as part of the course evaluation. These may include other community courses, employability skills courses, volunteering opportunities and progression onto other Nottingham College courses.
Sewing machines and other large equipment is supplied, but you should bring your own “easy” dress or accessory pattern and basic sewing kit of scissors, pins & needles, and a tape measure to the first session (all can be bought for about £5). You will need to supply all other materials and threads etc. for the project and this cost will depend on the fabric purchased, but we encourage re-using, recycling and love charity shops! We also have stock of trim, dress patterns and fabric to practice on at The Textile Workshop.
