The FTA’s CPPD Courses Gain ABC Awards’ Quality Licence


This means that Fashion Enter’s Fashion Technology Academy has undergone a rigorous external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet certain quality criteria.

At the end of a CPPD course successful learners will receive a Certificate of Achievement from ABC Awards and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the details of all the units the learner has completed as part of the course).

The completion of this course alone does not lead to an Ofqual regulated qualification but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills towards regulated qualifications in the future. The unit summary can be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning.

The CPPD courses have been designed by the Fashion Technology Academy to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements, which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. ABC Awards’ endorsement involves robust and stringent quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met.

Jenny Holloway CEO of FashionCapital and Fashion Enter comments: “We are over the moon! Being recognised for the CPPD we perform for M&S, New Look and Arcadia by ABC Awards is a real honour – it’s a testament to the hardworking talented team of tutors here at the Fashion Technology Academy. The process was very rigorous and robust but also ABC Awards was incredibly helpful and supportive.  Recently we have had other retailers requesting CPPD regarding Open Costings, the Factory Uncovered, Fits and Perfect Fits and many other niche training areas. Now we can offer certificates for the attendees too! Big thank you to the team and to ABC Awards.”
