Two NEXT Apprentices Pass With Distinction

Since 2010 Fashion-Enter Ltd (FEL) has provided apprenticeships for production and technical skills and aims to be a centre of excellence for specialist employment-ready training. Working with a broad range of employers, apprentices typically spend 4-days with their employer and 1-day training with FEL’s Fashion Technology Academy team. 

On 30th May 2024, the FTA  team were thrilled to find out that two recruits on the Level 4 Fashion and Textiles Product Technologist Standard with NEXT, the long-established multinational retailer, have passed with Distinction. Both apprentices, Jodie and Marcus, have worked hard and been exemplary candidates based at NEXT’s Head Office in Leicester. 

On receiving the news Jodie said: “I am absolutely over the moon to have received a Distinction in Fashion and Textiles Product Technologist. I’ve really enjoyed my time working and studying with the team at Fashion-Enter and am thankful for the opportunity to further my studies. Still on cloud 9!” 

“Completing the Product Technologist Apprenticeship has really helped me develop as a Garment Tech. It has deepened my fabric knowledge (previously my weakest subject) and it has forced me to expose myself to people within my company I would never have spoken to before. I’m really grateful to all the team at FEL for being so supportive throughout my time on the course and even the offer of further support now I’ve completed it!” Commented Marcus.

Head of Education at FEL, Lan Leeder added: We are excited to announce that Jodie and Marcus have passed their Level 4 Product Technologist Standard with Distinction. We congratulate them for their hard work and commitment to the course. The FTA has ensured that they have acquired all the necessary skills and knowledge to succeed in their apprenticeship. 

“Following their success we are preparing to welcome ten new apprentices from NEXT on July 3rd, we are thrilled to be part of their journey and endeavour to provide them with our full support.”
