Nicky Simpson’s GCSE Moderators comments: 

  • ‘In Textiles, the standard of the work was outstanding…The course structure was strong. Finished pieces were often exciting and innovative. The individuality of the candidates was clearly seen in the diversity of colours, styles and techniques carefully annotated in work books and then displayed in the final outcomes.”
  • “The course gave candidates a very strong framework on which to build a response to the theme. Ideas were developed showing depth and thought so that the work of the highest achieving candidates was original, creative and in-depth.”
  • “Textile candidates personal portfolios were brimming with ideas, experiments and references to textile and fashion designers as well as fine artists. Overall, the submission was exceptional in the engagement and industry and imaginative use of materials’.

    SOW and Textiles Skills Centre online courses are fabulous for gaining ideas and techniques to take straight into the classroom. I would highly recommend.

  2. Lucinda Warnes

    I have found these schemes absolutely invaluable. I have filled these schemes for the first time this year and have found the guidance invaluable. It has given me a cohesive approach and the comfort of mind of knowing that the students are progressing through a rock solid set of vital skills. I have used it hand in hand with the online courses giving me all the workshop skills needed. When my sketch books were moderated last week I had an excellent response form my head of faculty and have also seen my grades rise. Best £30 I’ve spent!
