Due to high demand and excellent success levels, the FTA is expanding the offer of the Tailoring courses in the new Tailoring Academy which has been supported by industry, the Mayors Good Growth Fund and Haringey Council. The Tailoring Academy is the first in the UK to be supported by government.
With the rise of on-shoring of production within the UK there is now a greater demand for the finer skills of tailoring. The tailoring courses covers the area of design, pattern making, cutting, fitting and the final stitching of the tailored items including jackets, trousers, skirts, lined shift dresses and waistcoats.
The Tailoring Academy also offers bespoke tailoring which is a highly skilled, specialist profession that involves exacting standards of expertise and reliability. There is a growing market for quality garments made to specific requirements and there are excellent career prospects for skilled tailors and costume-makers. The Level 3 Bespoke Tailoring Course equips students with the skills, knowledge and professionalism needed to pursue a successful career in bespoke tailoring, costume making, or other specialist areas of garment production.
This is an ideal pre-apprenticeship course for our Level 5 Diploma Bespoke Tailoring and Pattern Making course.
