100% Success Rate on Gerber Courses


As seen across all industries technology is constantly evolving and changing the way we work. In terms of fashion production the requirement for CAD pattern cutters has rapidly increased within the industry and in order to keep up with the demand manual pattern cutters need to upskill and adapt the way that they work to incorporate these new technologies.

Previous Gerber learner Emily said:“I used to work as a tailor at E.Tautz and Ozwald Boateng on Savile Row and now I am working as a freelance Pattern Cutter for Simone Rocha. I see more companies require CAD pattern cutters than manual pattern cutters, so I realised that I needed to learn these new techniques.”

The Fashion Technology Academy has been running Gerber courses – beginners, advanced and one-to-one, for several years now and is thrilled to have received a 100% success rate. Gerber, and more recently Optitex, equip pattern cutters with the skills employers require today and we regularly run introductory 1 to 3 day courses in both.

As requested by our learners we can now offer Optitex by the hour for those that have completed the introductory course and would like further practice. Subject to availability Optitex at the Academies can be booked by the hour at the rate of £15 per hour. Please contact beth@fashion-enter.com to book.
