This course will help you to develop basic levels of design and practical skill in sewing. It will prepare you for Intermediate Level study or a Level 2 qualification.
To ensure that you gain maximum benefit from your course you will need to attend all sessions, be punctual, and bring the correct materials to each session.
The course fees for this qualification do not cover the cost of equipment and materials.
