Apprenticeship Screening Day A Huge Success

Apprenticeship Screening Day A Huge Success
On Monday 7th August we hosted an apprenticeship screening day…
 
The event gave those looking to complete an apprenticeship the opportunity to hear about the current vacancies we currently have as well as the chance to meet our team and discuss which career route could be best for them.  Jenni Sutton, development manager, was also on hand to inform the attendees of job requirements and what many of the roles we have would ask them to do.
 
Here at FashionCapital and the Fashion Technology Academy, we pride ourselves on providing a hands-on experience to up-skill the next generation of the industry.  Our apprenticeships allow students to work for a real employer, earn a salary and gain workplace skills and experience.
