Course Details

This course consists of 12 modules which focus on getting students to develop their own style and designs, while giving students valuable professional practice. As a City and Guilds accredited course, this is a comprehensive online knitting course. Not only will you teach essential techniques, you’ll also enhance your own creativity and design skills.

Course Modules

There are around 360 hours of course content and materials split across 12 modules. Here’s what you’ll learn:

Delivery & Assessment

The course is supplied as a distance learning course where course materials and tutor assessments are delivered digitally and work is returned to your tutor via digital presentation.

Your coursework will be reviewed by your tutor and periodically by an Internal Quality Assessor, to ensure the appropriate quality standard is maintained. You will be provided with written feedback in a timely fashion (usually within 10 days) and, if needed, you will be able to re-submit altered work. You can contact your tutor at any time to request your work to date be reviewed and suggestions for future progress be made.

Course Timescales

There is around 360 hours of course content/materials and it is usual for students to take between 6-8 weeks to complete each module. Students can take up to 2 years to complete, however it is up to the individual student how quickly they wish to return work to their tutor for assessment.

A six-month contingency is available, to cover unforeseen issues such as illness, upon production of supporting documentation,  extending the course life to 30 months (2.5 years). The maximum for this extra contingency time is once during the course lifetime.

Aimed At

This course is aimed at crafters with a bit more knitting experience.  If you’re regularly completing projects using commercial patterns or kits and you have a fair, though not extensive understanding of different stitch techniques, we’d categorise you as having more experience than a beginner.

If you’ve been interested in knitting for a while, attended a workshop or course and regularly read around your craft (magazines, books, articles) then you’re probably ready to take these more advanced courses. The reason we say this is because our Skill Stage three courses are in-depth courses that require you to research, read and study your subject. We will obviously support you with tasks but some students may find this difficult without previous knowledge and experience of more formal education.

Our skill Stage 3 courses are also great for those with a business ambition. Our course includes an entire module called professional practise, which is aimed at getting your business ready. We teach valuable industry skills to really give you that professional, competitive edge.

Student Reviews

Hear from our recent graduates

"My favourite parts of the 4 modules was learning new simple and complex stitches. I loved the variety of design challenges and completing my first designed wearable item. My tutor’s feedback was invaluable. It encouraged me to experiment and motivated me to keep on track with the modules.."

Susan Rorison - Hand Knitting

Studetn Feedback from Patricia McCarthy

"Having completed my two years, I think the most useful learning tool was the development of a structured approach to design. I learnt how to go from an idea in my head to a completed design and all the steps in between."
