FULL TIME Training at north west school of design
The course consists of four full-year modules. In each year, the first three modules focus on the conceptual underpinnings, while the fourth module culminates the years learning into the Work Integrated Learning Module which focuses on the full cycle of production in the fashion world.
The first year of the course is compulsory for all students and forms the foundation of the programme – exiting students at NQF level 5. The course provides students with the opportunity to choose a career trajectory path and focus on the specialist set of skills and knowledgebase needed for either of these streams in their second year. Students can enter the industry as fashion designers with the practical and technical skillsets to design and produce patterns and construct garments that are grounded in research and trend analysis. While the Fashion Communication and Buying electives focus on providing students with an expanded array of career opportunities within the business of fashion.
