FEL’s New Information Advice and Guidance Procedures

We have a new policy on IAG (Information, Advice and Guidance) to support all learners and apprentices that FEL’s educational division, the Fashion Technology Academy, works with.

Why is our course occupancy rate up by 500%? Because FEL has developed a strong working relationship with CCCG (Capital City College Group) for the delivery of technical skills in fashion Levels 1-3. 

We ensure all students that undertake learning with us receive high quality support and information that will help them decide their next steps into further education or the workplace. The feedback from our IAG sessions has been fantastic with learner’s saying that they had found out about a wider spectrum of courses and career routes. 

Along with providing established, high quality information to aid career guidance FEL has implemented the eight Gatsby Benchmarks of Good Career Guidance:

1. A stable careers programme

2. Learning from career and labour market information

3. Addressing the needs of each pupil

4. Linking curriculum learning to careers

5. Encounters with employers and employees

6. Experiences of workplaces

7. Encounters with further and higher education

8. Personal guidance

Jenny Holloway, Founder and  CEO at Fashion-Enter Ltd commented: “The education and skills attainment we provide must really kickstart the learners careers and have a lasting impact. I personally feel as though it’s a great honour to be trusted with a learners education and therefore want them to have an outstanding learning journey with us. It is therefore essential we provide good quality advice and support that will benefit the learner beyond the classroom.”
