Learn New Skills This Lockdown!
Newsletter 17th February 2021
At Home Learning
Learn new skills this lockdown! The classroom maybe closed but thanks to the beauty of technology learning can still take place. We have teamed up with the well-established online learning provider for the fashion sector eTelestia to provide a range of online courses that learners can complete in their own time. Take your pick from online pattern cutting to technical drawing, upgrade your skills and get support from a qualified tutor who is on hand through this e-learning platform.
A former eTelestia learner commented: “In this world of everything online and everything digital you can be a bit on your own. It is difficult to find a good class where you are able to find online access and to work to your own schedule with the support of a human being, who can direct you, correct your mistakes and help you to progress quicker. I really found this with eTelestia.”
