Modern Apprenticeships in Fashion & Textiles Heritage

The industries in Scotland have developed the Modern Apprenticeship in Fashion and Textiles Heritage in collaboration with Creative Skillset.

There are a wide range of careers available in the fashion and textiles industry in Scotland and a Modern Apprenticeship is a great way to gain the required experience.

The Modern Apprenticeship in Fashion and Textiles Heritage is offered at both level 2 (SCQF 5) and level 3 (SCQF 6/7).

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.

Apprentices will develop an understanding of the industry in which they are working as well as a recognised qualification.
