Excellent Feedback from CANDI Curriculum Monitoring Visit

On the 23rd November 2023 the Fashion Technology Academy (FTA) based at Fashion-Enter Ltd’s HQ in Haringey received a curriculum monitoring visit from City and Islington College. Fashion-Enter and the FTA have been working with CANDI to deliver practical experience within their Level 1 and 2 fashion, business and textile courses.

The CANDI visit outcome for “assessed risk” was graded as Low risk.

The report stated that the reasons for this outcome were:

‘Fashion-Enter Ltd has an ideal offer in terms of the dual-purpose location visited in Haringey. The benefits were clear throughout the visit of the links to the live working environment, continually updated modern industry technology and equipment, excellent on-site teaching and learning facilities and a forward-thinking leadership team.’
