The Fashion Technology Academy fashion advanced apprenticeship scheme has been running successfully for the last ten years, providing apprentices the opportunity; to work for a real employer in the fashion industry, earn a real salary whilst gaining valuable workplace skills, experience and ultimately an accredited qualification.

The Fashion Technology Academy works closely with a wide range of employers in the fashion industry such as; ASOS, Marks and Spencer, M&Co, Jigsaw and much more. The Fashion and Textiles Apprenticeship programme is a unique combination of training and career specific work experience. Over the years multiple apprentices have built a long and sustainable rapport with their employers as well as completing the apprenticeship programme and leaving with an award winning qualification.

Former Apprentice Sannita states “I wouldn’t be where I am today without doing my apprenticeship. It started off my career in buying, the year and a half apprenticeship scheme helped me gain direct experience in the industry as well as learning about other aspects of my job through my once a week teaching at the fashion enter offices. I left the apprenticeship with a full time job the following day and am now a Junior Buyer in Berlin. Apprenticeships in my belief is one of the best ways to approach your career if university is not for you. I hope Fashion Enter can continue offering this opportunity for other people like me.”
