Apprenticeship Open Day
It was an opportunity for both candidates and employers to come along and learn more about the Level 3 and Level 4 programme and discuss their needs and expectations.
We had a fantastic turn out with 25 potential apprentices, Creative Skillset and employers such as River Island and Cad and Dandy all attend. Here are just a few comments from the day:
‘It was great to be at your Open Day today and to meet the River Island crew and other employers who may potentially come on board…. Thanks so much for organising it all, it was so good to see your work in action.’ Creative Skillset
‘I am happy I attended the Fashion and Textiles Apprenticeship open day as it has given me an insight to what I’d learn and how it can help me on my career path. I found this extremely helpful as I was able to see apprentices in their working environment. It was nice to be involved and get the useful advice when applying for jobs rather than doing it alone as it can be challenging within the fashion industry.’ Candice Stewart
‘I found the Fashion Apprentice open day very useful to me because it has now given me choices with what I want to do and has given me all the information I need. It was very interesting meeting with River island and hearing their experience of the business. I believe that this Fashion Apprentice is what I need and will help me in the future so that I can become the best that I can be.’ Sarah Balusa
‘Fashion Enter were really helpful and enthusiastic, the day was really well organised and informative. It was a good opportunity to meet potential employers and to see what they were looking for in a fashion apprentice and to become a fashion apprentice myself.‘ Sukhjeet Grewal
We are now setting up interviews with employers such as Jonathan Saunders, Marios Schwab, Sirplus and Cad and Dandy.
