Fashion Drawing, working drawing is an area of design that is good for portfolios and can benefit students who want to gain entrance on to an arts or fashion degree.

If I had to travel distance I would ask for more mileage
My Btec level 2 students came to me straight from school with very little in the way of confidence or exam results. The gained the skills and confidence necessary to go forward to level 3 Foundation courses in Fashion, Graphics and Art and Design. Some have gone on to University and now in full time employment.
I truly believe in education being the passport to your future.
