Technical Level 1 Videos with UFI Charitable Trust

Fashion-Enter Ltd and the Fashion Technology Academy (FTA) have been working with the UFI Charitable Trust on a series of technical skills videos. UFI VocTech Trust became a grant-funding body following the sale of Learndirect in 2010. With an initial fund of £50m, the Trust is focussed on delivering an increase in the scale of vocational learning. The Trust supports the delivery of adult vocational skills through digital technology with the aim to use funding to catalyse change across the UK so that significant scale can be achieved in digital vocational learning for adults. 

Since the beginning of lockdown and social distancing online learning has never been so important and these two Fashion Technical News Level 1 videos on Safe Working practises and Threading A Flatbed Machine are clear and easy to follow.

Online digital learning is clearly the way forward as a complementary method to the classroom and hands-on practical experience.

Fashion-Enter CEO Jenny Holloway comments: “It’s all about technical skills! If Covid-19 has taught us anything it is the importance of videos, digital platforms and a new way of learning.  This why we are so delighted with the resulting videos from the UFI Charitable Trust project. 

“We have now gone live with the interactive videos that also have a unique way of learning by deliberately showing how not to thread a machine or work safely. The videos allow the user to stop and confirm where the processes are wrong so it just embeds learning and provides a new dimension.

“Very grateful thanks to Caroline O’Donnell of the UFI Trust who was invaluable with her guidance, Ian Morris and Steve Reynolds and of course the amazing Julia Jeans who was the independent researcher from the Institute of Education. That was one awesome team!”
