Fashion is the most visible of industries – it’s exciting, it’s dynamic and it’s everywhere. All modules where possible link to the fashion industry preparing the students for the realities of the working world. We encourage students to gain part-time work experience whilst they’re on the course – retail, customer service and volunteering all offer opportunities to develop useful skills and attributes.

We’ll take you on a range of visits, which may include trips to various cities such as London, Manchester, Leeds etc., for industry specific visits such as working textile mills, fashion head offices, testing houses. We will explore a range of inspirational galleries and exhibitions. You’ll get plenty of notice of these activities so that you can budget accordingly, some visits may be free, but others will incur a charge varying with the nature of the visit and the distance travelled. Such charges will be kept to a reasonable rate.

Before you begin your course, you’ll need to make sure you’re prepared with the right equipment. Many of our courses need specialist health and safety clothing, but we’ve made it simple - some of your essentials and college branded clothing can be bought from our online shop.
