Time for T


In a multibillion-pound drive to improve technical training Chancellor Philip Hammond has unveiled radical plans to ensure technical education is on a par with academic studies.

School leavers that undertake technical training courses such as engineering or manufacturing, such as the ones available at the Fashion Technology Academy, will spend 50 per cent longer learning and will gain more hands-on skills experience.

The initiative has been devised in order to make Britain ‘match fit’ and boost productivity before Brexit comes into full force.

CEO of FashionCapital, Fashion Enter and the Fashion Technology Academy, Jenny Holloway, comments:

“This week we congratulate all the A-Level students with their results and we mean ALL! Some may not have had the desired results but there’s now a new generation of go-getters that will surely succeed in life. These are the future backbone of the fashion industry – people who can construct garment, who can use their hands to create patterns, sew a garment together and understand how production works!  So come along to our Fashion Technology Academy and open a whole new world of opportunities.”
