FTA’s Bespoke CPPD Courses a Resounding Success


cppd groupSince the launch of the Fashion Technology Academy (FTA) one-year ago the educational team has had resounding success with their range of Continual Personal and Professional Development (CPPD) courses, Factory Uncovered Tours and step-by-step insight into the garment life cycle.

Attracting established high street names such as New Look, Topshop and M&S, to fashion universities and secondary schools, the bespoke tours and seminars provide real hands-on, insider knowledge that can only enhance the attendee’s knowledge and understanding of the entire garment process.

Calypso recently attended the FTA’s ‘Understanding Factories’ course as part of the Arcadia Group and she said: “In my 2-years at Arcadia I have never been on such an educational and beneficial course. Your hands-on, honest and personal approach really resonated and I now feel much more confident in my role and prepared for the day I visit one of my suppliers factories!”

“A great course thank you. I have gained first-hand experience of a factory and learnt a huge amount on British manufacturing.” Amy – Assistant Buyer at M&S.

I have learnt all about the point of view of a factory and how they work but also what to look for as a buyer when visiting factories and using suppliers. Very interesting and helpful. Thank you very much for your time. Hope to visit again!” Charlotte at New Look

“I have refreshed my knowledge of the fashion production industry, however the information received today was so in depth that I have learnt more about the step by step processes. Really great information and the tour / SMETA task was really helpful.” Chelsea – Trainee Tutor at UEL

“I have gained insight into the running of a factory and learnt information that cannot be comprehended through other sources such as the internet.” – Saba from the University of Westminster
