I wish to understand how design technology textiles is taught in Poland - in comparison to the UK National Curriculum? I am focusing on KS3 UK years 7 8 and 9.

I wish to design resources that may help students entering the UK education system to study textiles.
Many thanks

Adele - to be blunt, it's barely taught at all. The Polish system is heavily theory based, and any resources you use will have to be from the very beginning - children here are simply unfamiliar with the concept of hands-on learning.

thank you - I spoke to someone who went through Polish education system 20 years ago who said they were taught textiles as a functional skill - sewing things like making an apron. she was unsure if the schools still taught textiles this way?

great idea, I think

I agree with delphiandomine but in my time - 70/80s we used to have something called ZPT - zajecia praktyczno-techniczne
it was a split among: cooking/cookery classes -we learnt about products - everything from caloric values to vitamins and metabolism; what meat comes from what part of an animal etc; we ate what we cooked and served to others whatever we cooked;

also we were judged on silly things like spreading the butter correctly (!), use of silverware etc; sewing - learning all from basic (sewing by hand and knitting) to making skirts/trousers etc,

you could say - ladies college;
classes were split - girls and boys and very few were lessons were mixed

and yes, we did learn about textiles back then but not the way it's here. I know that from experience

I would suggest getting in touch with someone in Lodz which is the capital of Polish textile industry.

Many thanks - that is very helpful

Can you take a qualification in Textiles as we do in the UK - GCSE design and technology textiles?

no
but when you went to something called 'technology college' (not sure they are still operating) then you could specialise - textiles, ceramics etc
it would finish with Polish equivalent of A-levels and after that you went on to study or to a job that needed your skills

thanks - you say you made trousers / skirt - would this have been from a pattern and not include you changing it or modifying it to a design? (WOuld this also be taught to boys and girsl)

You have been so helpful - thank you

I dont exactly understand what you mean but if you are intrested in Uni education there is:

Academy of Fine Arts in Lodz (Akademia Sztuk Pięknych), Faculty of Textile and Fashion

asp.lodz.pl/index.php?lang=en

Technical University of Lodz (Politechnika £ódzka), Faculty of Material Technologies and Textile Design (Wydział Technologii Materiałowych i Wzornictwa Tekstyliów)

style.p.lodz.pl/lang/2/119/120/

The Higher School of Art and Design

wssip.edu.pl/kontakt.php

I know that there is some Textile education (I mean artistic textile courses) at the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk and many others school public and private
