For several years Fashion-Enter Ltd have worked with Mountain Warehouse to provide positions on the Fashion and Textiles Apprenticeship programme. The selected apprentice would gain on-the-job experience with the Mountain Warehouse team 4-days a week and then would spend 1-day a week at the Fashion Technology Academy (FTA) for further module training.
Just before lockdown hit in March 2020 we had two apprentices, Carmel and Esme, at Mountain Warehouse and now we are pleased to announce they have been asked to resume their apprenticeships. And that’s not all! Former Mountain Warehouse garment tech apprentice Gabby Howell has been offered a full time position with the company as an assistant garment technologist.
Gabby recently came into the FTA to thank the team for all their support. She said: “It’s been a challenge, when I first started I didn’t anything, I didn’t even know what a hem was! Mountain Warehouse and you guy’s (the FTA) have been so supportive the entire time.” Jenny Holloway, CEO of Fashion-Enter and the FTA, said that Gabby’s commitment had shone through. Gabby also mentioned how grateful she was to be offered a job at this difficult time.
