ASOS.com Attend CPPD Training With Fashion Enter
Attending a CPPD with Fashion Enter, ASOS employees spent the day with Jenny Holloway and pattern cutter Debbie. From a wealth of roles including Buying Admins, Menswear Buyers, Learning & Development Partners, Ethical Trade Admins, Ethical Trade Assistants and Sourcing Consultants the group were keen to see more of the factory and learn about how an ethical manufacturing factory operates.
With the ability to give hands on insightful experience that attendees can take away with them to their workplace, our bespoke CPPD courses provide personal and professional growth that aids the capabilities of an individual to realise their full potential.
Starting the morning with an overview of the company which includes the business, sister companies, the history and the workforce and teams at the factory, the group were keen to see for themselves the operations of a factory and the job roles that are filled on the factory floor.
After a lunch that allowed the group to discuss what they had seen so far, they spent the afternoon with Debbie, Head of Patterns, they had the ability to learn the art of pattern cutting over a two-hour session.
Upon finishing their time here at Fashion Enter the group commented;
“The CPPD has shown me how a factory runs and how timing, costings and different fabrics affect the process.” – Rosie, Buyers Assistant Menswear Tailoring
“I have learnt efficienty and thought that goes into production and also the importance of pattern cutting and communication… I have very much enjoyed my time here.” – Maddy, Menswear Buyer
