Apprenticeships in Fashion & Textiles

The Apprenticeships in Fashion and Textiles have been designed by fashion and textiles professionals, so the training is relevant to the industry.

There are three frameworks – at levels 2, 3 and 4 – with multiple pathways for each one.

What are the entry requirements?

Whilst there are no qualification requirements, applicants must have an interest in and appreciation of the industry and a range of soft skills and attributes such as team work and communication skills.

As a college or training provider, it will be your responsibility to provide the off-the-job learning. You will need to work with each apprentice and employer to tailor the training to the needs of both.
