Fashion and Textiles Apprenticeships

Fashion and Textiles Apprenticeships prepare people with the technical and practical skills which the sector needs to be able to compete now and in the future. There are five areas of specialisation: apparel, textiles, footwear, leather goods and saddlery. Depending on the role, an Apprenticeship will take between one and four years to complete.

If you are planning to recruit, why not take a look at this scheme? You can also use Apprenticeships to train existing staff. As a further bonus, there is also the possibility of Government funding to cover the training element.


There are two textile and fashion specialist training providers locally;
