I've just finished looking at the new spec for the btec fashion & clothing level 2 course. Yippee no compulsory art/drawing modules this time. I'm much more into the garment construction side of things so think this will suit me well. I was put off before by the amount of drawing involved. My dept head is very keen to introduce more btecs, the students will definitely prefer the course to an exam based subject so I'm getting positive feedback. Is anyone else in the same position, would anyone like to "virtually" get together to discuss this? I have no experience of btec and I'm not sure where to start. There doesn't seem to be any cpd courses as there are with other exam boards. But, I was a textile technologist in industry so can support in this area and always happy to share what I do.
