Hi there If you want Textiles Technology then the only board which still does a course is AQA. I am not sure any of us would 'recommend it'! Sorry that was a bit tongue in cheek. the coursework is fine - lots of feedback and support but the theory which is 50% of the course is more than stressful as the board haveno book and the spec is very broad - you basically have to find all of the information from whatever sources you can and guess if it is correct. Stuff usually comes up in the exam that I haven't covered because it wasn't clear in the spec that you had to teach it and finding the info would be hard anyway. We have a couple of 'online communitoies to support one another because for the theory the exam board are very little help. having said that I did go to a very good course this time last year on the AS content. Am now waiting for an A2 content one. I have also written a 'book' of about 250,000 words of notes for my students and I know several other teachers have done the same for this course. I still don't know if what i have written is right.
