Feedback from the previous Gerber course held in July 2022 included:
“I have learnt how to work the basic functions and venture into some of the exercises. I appreciated the small class size, as it made it easy to ask questions and go over something again. Top marks.” – Esther
“10 out of 10.” – YR
“I have learnt so many things from this seminar. I will keep continuing to learn about Gerber in the future. Thank-you so much.” – Yan
This is the latest Gerber course that we have undertaken since the opening of the FC Tailoring Academy (FCTA) which was in November 2019. During the time line from November 2019 to October 2022 Fashion-Enter Ltd (FEL) has provided instruction in courses in grading to over 325 individuals. FEL’s team is relatively small in marketing and therefore FEL does not have the time to individually comment on every course run. However, FEL is incredibly proud of its achievement.
FEL / FCTA CEO Jenny Holloway commented: “Each year that goes by our delivery methods never cease to amaze me on the work we undertake and the training we operate. I am so proud of the marketing and teaching team for all the hard work that they undertake and the feedback is constantly high achieving and positive.
“I would also like to to thank tutors; Ben, Elle, Leyla, Chris, Herve and his team from Vetigraph for all their assistance in making the delivery of 300 target learners achieved. We could not have opened the Tailoring Academy at a worse time but the results speak for themselves and we have achieved nearly all the target outputs and outcomes set in June 2019; a long time before Covid was even heard of. May I also say a big thank-you to Haringey Council for their amazing support too over the last four years. Now, what do we do next?!”
