Outreach Hub

Welcome to the Fashion Retail Academy's Outreach Hub

Our resources can be used to help your school or college meet the Gatsby benchmarks:

Learning from career and labour market information & encounters with further and higher education - We have put together PowerPoints which you can use to complete workshops for each course.

Encounters with employers and employees & experiences of workplaces - There are also videos, testimonials, and career journeys of various people in the industry.

Addressing the needs of each pupil - You will find below some independent creative projects for fashion retail and design which your students can complete over the summer. There are also some links to fashion industry news sites and virtual fashion collections that you and your students can explore. We’ve also created an engaging interactive game for students to enjoy about the different careers on offer in the fashion industry.

Welcome to the Fashion Retail Academy’s Outreach Hub! This resource will support your and your students to learn about the FRA and all the different career routes available in the fashion industry. If you have any questions about the FRA or the fashion industry, please email info@fra.ac.uk.

You can pick, choose and download whichever sections are most relevant and circulate to your students. We’ve included presentations, specific course showreels, information from current and past students as well as careers advice from Industry professionals on each course so you can choose whatever you feel is the most suitable for your needs.

We also know open days are an important factor so there is a link at the bottom to register for our next available Open Day, as well as a Virtual Tour your students can take.

We have also devised a fun quiz to help determine which is the right career choice for your pupils if they are unsure of what direction to go in – just cut and paste the link in an e-mail to them.

Information and Guidance for Schools & Colleges

Our primary goal is to support our schools’ network with in-person visits but as we are unable to do that at the moment. Aside from the materials available on this page, we have filmed an online version of our ‘Careers in Fashion Retail’ Virtual Presentation. This covers all of the different career options available and includes some fun videos. The presentation lasts about 20 mins and can be shown at virtual fairs or as part of a lesson plan. Please email events@fra.ac.uk if you would like to request a copy or discuss how we can alternatively support you. In your email, please give us as much information on your school and your needs by filling out our Event Booking Form. We look forward to hearing from you and hope you and your students find our Outreach Hub beneficial.
