The Textile Insitute is delighted to launch a new series of Short Courses. Under the umbrella title of 'Introduction to Clothing' these courses are intended as a complementary offering to the existing 'Introduction to Textiles' course which has been running since 2010.
Six separate courses will provide a basic introduction to the subject and are intended for anyone just starting a career in the clothing industry whether this be at operative level; a new graduate from another discipline, or management level coming from another industry sector.
Each course is one full day and delegates may choose to attend individual courses or build up a body knowledge by attending some or all of the courses.
The curriculum has been developed with the financial support of CAPITB Trust, an independent charity providing support and funding for "people employed or about to be employed in the British clothing industry".
The courses are Approved by The Textile Institute a system of validation assessed by independent and impartial experts. Each individual course accrues academic credit, which along with a specified period of working practice may be used towards obtaining Textile Institute Chartered Professional Qualifications.
