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