To answer your questions contact DATA they are running a GCSE Textile rescue programme which I would highly recommend. Regarding controlled assessment, I have set tight deadlines for my students and they have a final deadline for February half term. The students should not be working on their folders at home. Offer aftrschool sessions for students who are absent. My current year 11 group have 3 x 1 hour lessons a week. I follow the OCR syllabus and they completed one unit from Easter to the Summer while in year 10 and the second unit in September of year 11. I have taken into consideration time lost for external exams and work experience. Once students start controlled assessment, one lesson a week is on exam prepation and revision and is linked to their coursework. Limit the number of tasks you offer to your students, this will reduce your stress.
