Abstract: During 1988/9, Banking Information Service (BIS) commissioned post-graduate research 'To identify the educational and business perspectives of economic awareness and to suggest an effective programme of involvement with respect to BIS.' Part of the methodology was to conduct standardised interviews with representatives from Education & Training, Industry & Commerce and Other Agencies. An executive from the British Knitting & Clothing Export Council (BKCEC) spoke convincingly of the burgeoning design talent amongst young Britons on the one hand, and their deficiency in financial planning and management on the other. 'Trading with Textiles' was one specific outcome of the BKCEC interview. This resource has been produced to assist Home Economics teachers meet the 4 Attainment Targets by encouraging students to: evaluate an existing garment; identify needs and opportunities for a garment of their own; generate a design; plan and make the garment; evaluate their garment. Production took eighteen months and involved a team of professionals from business and education. The paper addresses this process.
Description: This is a conference paper.
