CPPD is an on-going and continual process of both personal and professional growth that improves the capability of an individual to realise their full potential. Fashion-Enter Ltd (FEL) delivers CPPD training for industry professionals seeking deep rich learning in a live factory environment to ensure full understanding of the complete garment life cycle is achieved. Workshops include Garment Technology, Buying and Merchandising as well as bespoke tailor made courses to suit your company’s specific needs.

As FEL is a totally ethically and sustainable run factory which is both SMETA and Fast Forward approved the aim of these short courses is to pass on how factories undertake malpractices and for buyers, merchandisers and garment technologists to be empowered with information ready to spot factories operating incorrectly. This is a must attend workshop.

The courses can be 4 hours long and prices are on an hourly rate for a maximum of 10 participants. Please get in touch for an initial consultation and then we recommend that you come and visit us, review our working environment, read our feedback forms and then select your CPPD workshop.
