School Leaver Our fully funded level 2 to level 4 courses offer 16 to 18 year olds the chance to earn a nationally recognised qualification, at the same time as gaining an invaluable three week work placement with a major fashion brand (on many courses). We provide the quickest route possible into employment in the Fashion Retail Industry. Typically level 2 and 4 courses are one year, with level 3 courses running over two years. Studying is two days per week, adding an extra day for those needing additional Maths and English support. On graduation students can choose which route they want to progress. Over 92% of former FRA students go on to full time employment or further studies. Our level 3 courses, equivalent to A-Levels, provide up to 168 UCAS points enabling graduates to keep their options open at the end of the course.
