4 1. Your Programme 1.1 Programme General Description This programme has been designed as a response to the changing profile of the fashion industry and its need to develop graduates with the creative, practical and business skills to be successful in the marketplace. It provides a framework for the personal development of creativity and expertise within a fashion enterprise culture, and the transferable skills needed for sustainable success as a fashion professional. Throughout your programme your tutors will be in close contact with each other, and will work with you across all aspects of your programme to encourage communication, good working relationships and the integration of theory and practice. Should you experience problems in contacting any of your module tutors, please inform your year tutor. What will I study? Level 4 modules provide students with an introduction to the disciplinary culture of Fashion Enterprise. It enables students to acquire a foundation of concepts, techniques and processes through which they can begin to develop the knowledge and understanding, intellectual, practical and transferable skills that will be explored and further developed throughout the programme. Student work at this level is generally tutor led, although students do have choice through their direction and interpretation of assignment briefs. During Level 5, students are encouraged to take a more active and independent role in their personal development. At this level students deepen their subject knowledge, experience and associated skills through developing individual areas of interest within fashion enterprise. Design and market awareness are integrated and extended through a range of live assignments and entrepreneurial activity that will enable the student to identify their future career goals. Level 6 is seen as the consolidation of the students study and expertise across all areas, through extended self-directed investigation and production, in preparation for professional practice. International competition work is undertaken at this level. How will I be assessed? The programme is modular and assessment takes place on a continuous basis to enable progression from Level 4 to Level 5 and Level 6. Students undertake intellectually challenging work involving in-depth study. At Levels 5 and 6, students are expected to display an increasingly independent approach to learning. Level 6 is the culmination of progression and this is demonstrated through the submission of a dissertation and practical work (Final Major Project) What are the job opportunities? Although the programme is designed to encourage self-employment, graduates can access a wide range of Fashion related opportunities e.g. workshop delivery, commissions, freelance design, retail (nationally internationally), styling, design marketing/promotion and education.

7 1.4 Learning Outcomes and Assessment Criteria The aim of your programme is to help you to develop the knowledge and understanding, personal attributes and essential skills that will equip and prepare you for continuing personal development and professional practice, with a particular emphasis on the skills of employability. Learning outcomes describe what you should be able to understand, know and do at a defined stage of your programme, or within a module. They also help you to understand what you need to know (knowledge and programme content), how you can learn it (learning and teaching strategies) and how well you have learnt it (assessment). Therefore, explicit learning outcomes encourage you to take a more active, studentcentred approach to learning and assessment. Each learning outcome has a linked assessment criteria, which indicates the evidence you need to provide so that your achievement of the learning outcome can be assessed. The learning outcomes and assessment criteria are divided into four main headings: Knowledge and understanding - what you will be expected to know and understand about the content of your subject. Cognitive and intellectual skills - thinking skills, eg. analysis, generating ideas, problem-solving. Practical and professional skills - doing skills, eg. presentation, technical processes, using materials and equipment, professional practice. Key transferable skills - essential skills that can be transferred between activities, eg. communication, numeracy, use of IT, learning how to learn. The learning outcomes and assessment criteria for your programme are given below, and you will notice that they become more challenging as you progress from Level 4 to Level 5, then to Level 6. The assessment criteria are highlighted in red below each learning outcome. Level 4 Learning Outcomes On successful completion of Level 4, you will be able to: Knowledge and Understanding Describe, explain and use key elements of knowledge and key concepts of fashion enterprise in defined contexts Evidence of key elements of subject knowledge Identify, explain and apply selected research methods in defined contexts Evidence of relevant research methods Generate a range of ideas in defined contexts Ability to generate a range of ideas Cleveland College of Art & Design BA (Hons) Fashion Enterprise Programme Handbook

They provide excellent opportunities for research and to make contact with potential employers. Educational visits are organised in advance to give you time to budget accordingly and to let you know about costs and timings. It is important that you attend any visit that you have agreed to participate in. All educational visits must be paid for in advance by the specified deadline. Any student who withdraws from a visit at short notice may be required to pay in full. Cleveland College of Art & Design BA (Hons) Fashion Enterprise Programme Handbook

12 2. Learning and Teaching 2.1 Learning and Teaching Overview Your programme has been designed to give you a clear and logical learning experience, which encourages you to take an active part in the learning process. Each Level of the programme has explicit learning outcomes that indicate the range of your knowledge and understanding, cognitive and intellectual skills, practical and professional skills and key transferable skills. The programme helps you to develop the ability to plan, manage and evaluate your learning, which is vital to the process of you being able to take more responsibility and to become more independent. It also encourages you to take a more questioning approach, so that you can start to problem-solve with increasing confidence in your own judgements. Formative feedback throughout modules helps you to recognise the progress of your own learning, and to identify your individual strengths and areas for development, based on feedback from your tutors, other students, and your own self-evaluations. Level 4 - Foundation and Orientation Level 4 provides you with an introduction to the concepts, skills and knowledge associated with your subject area. You are given an appropriate level of tutor guidance within timetabled teaching sessions, but you are also expected to develop your skills during independent study time. Regular tutorials help to support you in developing independence as a learner. Formative feedback, both verbal and written, is used by tutors to provide you with a clear indication of your progress, and formative self and peer evaluation is used to help you to develop your critical and evaluative abilities. Level 5 - Development and Exploration The learning and teaching strategies used in Level 5 encourage you to take a more active involvement in your personal development. You are provided with opportunities to extend your subject knowledge and associated skills, and to study specific areas in greater depth. As you progress through Level 5, you are able to focus increasingly on your individual areas of interest and specialism. This is determined through the Learning Agreement, in which you can negotiate routes of research, development and realisation. Throughout Level 5, work-related learning and work experience enable you to develop your professional practice and experience of working in a commercial context. Increased levels of formative self and peer evaluation, in conjunction with the Learning Agreement, help you to take more responsibility for your learning. Level 6 Consolidation and Expertise In Level 6, you undertake a range of intellectually challenging work involving in-depth study, which helps you to consolidate your prior experience, knowledge and skills to a higher level of expertise. Emphasis is placed upon self-initiated projects and your ability to plan and manage your own learning within all modules. You are expected to Cleveland College of Art & Design BA (Hons) Fashion Enterprise Programme Handbook

13 work with a considerable degree of independence and to exercise effective critical analysis, evaluation and professional practice. However, your specialist tutors will give you guidance throughout Level 6 in order to provide a structured and supportive learning environment, promoting a manageable level of student autonomy while continuing to address any potential issues. Individual student-initiated projects are undertaken within the module framework to assist you in the realisation of creative aspirations as an independent practitioner. Project topics for the Minor Project and Final Major Project modules are negotiated with specialist tutors, seeking to identify potential career routes and the development towards lifelong learning. The Professional Practice and Dissertation modules are characterised by a high level of independent learning, critical thinking, communication and organisation. 2.2 Learning and Teaching Methods A variety of methods is used to help you to engage with your learning, both by you as a student and by your tutors the range of these methods is described below. Timetabled Teaching Sessions Your student timetable clearly indicates the teaching sessions that have been arranged for you across the modules that you are studying. All timetables for the academic year are included in the Module Guide for the Level you are studying (available on the VLE). Within your teaching sessions, you will take part in a variety of activities that will help you to learn and develop as appropriate to each module and assignment. Specific learning and teaching strategies used in teaching sessions can include: Projects and assignments - covering a range of learning areas Tutorials - for appraisal and development as an individual or in groups Critiques - to provide formative feedback and to develop your presentation skills Lectures - formal and informal Seminars - discussions that develop your critical responses Demonstrations - practical and workshop-based activities Enhancement activities - visiting speakers, educational visits, workshops Independent Study In addition to teaching sessions, the development of your skills and knowledge requires extra individual input defined as independent study. This will appear on your timetables and is an important part of the learning hours required for each module. During these periods, tutors are not timetabled to teach you, but technician/demonstrators and Library staff are available to help you to undertake research and the development of ideas and practical work. It is your responsibility to make good use of independent study time and the facilities available. It is essential that you access the specialist workshops during this time to develop your skills with materials, equipment and processes. The College's opening times and access to resources are intended to provide extra opportunities for you to benefit from your studies and to achieve your goals. Tutorials Tutorial support is available throughout your programme of study. Tutorials are arranged so that you can discuss your work, progress and assessment, or any personal issues with your tutors on a confidential basis. Each student has a Cleveland College of Art & Design BA (Hons) Fashion Enterprise Programme Handbook

14 designated Personal Tutor, who arranges the timing of tutorials throughout the year. You can also request additional tutorials if appropriate, particularly if you need to discuss any personal issues that may be affecting your studies. There are three types of tutorial: Individual Academic Tutorials - These are organised to discuss your academic progress with your Module Tutor or Personal Tutor in confidence on a one-to-one basis. Occasionally, there may be more than one tutor present as circumstances require. Group Academic Tutorials - These take place with tutor(s) and groups of students to discuss assignments, overall progress and key themes concerning the programme. Personal issues and individual progress are not discussed in group tutorials. Pastoral Tutorials - These are organised for individual students as required to discuss any personal issues or concerns with your tutor on a confidential basis. It is not always possible for tutors to advise on personal issues, but you can be referred to the appropriate Student Services, who are trained to deal with pastoral concerns. Assignments A strategy based on practical and/or written work, ranging from staff-initiated activities at Level 4, and leading progressively to increasingly student-led activities at Levels 5 and 6. Live Assignments An assignment negotiated between a tutor and a relevant external agency, providing an opportunity for you to work within the constraints of a commercial brief. Live assignments can also include competitions and awards. Projects An activity initiated by you as a student in which the emphasis is on student-centred learning. The tutor acts as a supervisor, negotiating the choice of topic with you through the Learning Agreement and supporting you through the project, which can be undertaken on an individual basis and/or in groups. Lectures A structured presentation of ideas, concepts and content knowledge by academic staff and visiting lecturers to groups of students, followed by feedback, questions and answers. Seminars A group activity involving the open discussion and analysis of topics. Seminars may be tutor-led or student led and can include short presentations. Group Critiques These involve all students in presenting and discussing work with tutors and the peer group within modules, giving you the opportunity to evaluate and respond to feedback. Cleveland College of Art & Design BA (Hons) Fashion Enterprise Programme Handbook

15 Workshops Specific activities within specialist modules that provide the skills required for assignments and can be delivered by tutors and/or technician/demonstrators. Technical and practical skills are developed in a range of techniques, processes and materials relevant to your area of study and specialism. Educational Visits Educational visits to a range of external venues provide opportunities for you to broaden your field of research and knowledge related to your area of study. You will be given information about your programme s planned educational visits throughout the academic year. Learning Agreements As you progress through the programme, there are increasing opportunities for you to negotiate your own learning. Learning Agreements are introduced at Level 5 as a mechanism to support you in defining your individual learning in the context of the programme. Within the Learning Agreement, you will outline how you intend to fulfil the module aims and outcomes and how you plan to achieve this. This enables you to vary the work you produce according to your own personal and professional goals and aspirations whilst meeting the specified aims and learning outcomes of the module. At Level 6, you are expected to use the Learning Agreements for your Minor Project and Final Major Project. The Learning Agreements contribute towards evidence of your Personal Development Planning. Work Experience Work experience refers to any optional period of industrial, professional or commercial experience arranged with an employer or external agency as part of the programme. It can be an invaluable aspect of your development, providing you with the opportunity to put your knowledge and skills into a professional context and to give you a realistic view of employment. You are encouraged to participate in work experience that will suit your individual interests and circumstances. The majority of work experience is unpaid, but can provide invaluable professional contacts and potential future employment opportunities. Your tutors will help you to find appropriate work experience, but you will be expected to take responsibility for the details of organisation, including travel and accommodation if appropriate. You can find more information about work experience in the Work Experience Student Handbook, which you can access on the VLE. E-learning The integration of IT into learning and teaching embeds the use of appropriate technologies, including the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). The VLE gives you flexible access to information and documentation about your programme and related study materials both in and outside of the College environment. Examples of items featured on the VLE include programme documents, hyperlinks to important websites, discussion forums, PowerPoints and research tools. The VLE provides a link to the College's interactive Study Skills Website, which enables you to access guidance in researching and producing written work. The interactive nature of the website helps you to access information that is relevant to your study needs whenever you need it. Cleveland College of Art & Design BA (Hons) Fashion Enterprise Programme Handbook

16 2.3 Personal Development Planning (PDP) Personal Development Planning [PDP] is a process that will give you the opportunity to plan and reflect on your learning and development throughout your programme in preparation for future professional practice. PDP will help you to measure and monitor your academic and professional progress based on your own selfevaluations, and on feedback from tutors, peers and interaction with potential clients (eg. within live assignments). It will also help you to develop a range of skills and information that will contribute towards the development of independent learning and employability. PDP will be evidenced in a range of assessment components, eg. Learning Agreements and self-evaluations, and supported by tutorial records and written feedback. PDP will benefit you by: Providing a clear overview of your studies Helping you to reflect critically on your progress and performance Enabling you to become more independent Encouraging you to take an active role in your learning and career development Providing you with opportunities for self-evaluation, forward planning and working towards the achievement of personal goals Enhancing your opportunities for learning and development Cleveland College of Art & Design BA (Hons) Fashion Enterprise Programme Handbook

17 3. Assessment 3.1 Assessment and Feedback The purpose of assessment is to measure the outcomes of your learning, in terms of the knowledge, understanding and skills you have demonstrated. It is a process that confirms your level of achievement against the learning outcomes of each module. During the programme, your work will be assessed on a continuous basis, allowing your progress to be carefully monitored. Assessment takes place in a variety of ways and provides you with regular and constructive feedback, both verbal and written, to help you to take increasing responsibility for your own learning. Formative Feedback This provides supportive, constructive and diagnostic feedback throughout assignments and modules, and helps you to identify your progress and what you need to do so that you can improve the quality of your work before you hand it in for assessment. Summative Assessment Summative assessment takes place at the end of a module, after you have handed in the work you have been asked to do. The work required for each module, and the dates and arrangements or submitting it, will be clearly indicated on your assignment briefs. After submission, your work will be marked against the learning outcomes of each module. Following the summative assessment of your work for each module, you will be given a copy of your summative assessment feedback sheet that will indicate your final mark and written feedback about your performance. You will normally receive this summative feedback within 4 academic weeks of the summative assessment deadline for each module. For an explanation of the summative mark you have achieved in each module, you can refer to the Awards Marking Criteria. To pass a module, you must achieve all of the learning outcomes with a minimum mark of 40%. Students should note that any feedback given prior to an Assessment Board is for the purposes of advice and guidance and to assist your learning and development. References to standards and marks are entirely provisional and subject to confirmation following validating body procedures. Summative marks are not final until they have been confirmed by the Assessment Board. Internal Moderation This is the process through which students work is marked by more than one tutor to ensure the standard and consistency of marking decisions. Assessment decisions are then discussed by the relevant members of staff and a final mark is agreed. Assessment Criteria Assessment criteria are indicated on every assignment brief and module specification (in your Module Guides) and indicate the evidence you need to provide against each learning outcome.

21 3.3 Awards and Progression Your progression from one Level of your programme to the next will depend on the successful completion of all modules in each Level. You will need to pass all of the modules at each Level to progress or to achieve your final award. Publication of Results At the end of each year, following the Assessment Boards, you will be informed of your results through e-vision, which is an electronic system for the reporting of marks. Towards the end of your first year of study you will be allocated a log-in password and details of how to access e-vision. Please note that this password will last for the duration of your studies and you will need to remember it. If you experience any difficulties accessing e-vision please contact the General Office on Submission and Late Submission of Work For all of your modules, you will be assessed on the work that you have produced and that you submit at the end of each module. There are no final examinations at the end of modules. You will be given clear guidelines within your modules about how, when and where you need to submit work for assessment. If you are in any doubt about these arrangements, please make sure you contact the relevant Module Tutor as soon as possible. You must attempt all assessments at the first opportunity. You must do each assessment (course work, essay, project, report, etc.) for every module. You should do this even if you don t think you can fully complete them. You do not have an automatic right to resit or to repeat a year of study. An Assessment Board (which meets at the end of the academic year to look at all your marks) will decide whether you can resit or repeat study. The Assessment Board will take into account whether you have attempted all assessments. It is much more likely to give you an opportunity to take resits or repeat study if you have attempted all assessments. It is less likely to give you this opportunity if there are some assessments which you did not attempt at the first opportunity. All work for assessment must be handed in on time. In some circumstances students can apply for a 7 day extension. This is referred to as Extension to Assessment Deadline, and must be agreed officially with your Programme Leader. In exceptional circumstances requests can be made for a longer extension but this must be approved by the relevant Head of School - please speak to your Programme Leader about the process for applying for this extension. These applications must be supported by relevant documentary evidence such as a doctor's note. Cleveland College of Art & Design BA (Hons) Fashion Enterprise Programme Handbook
