During your course, we’ll teach you to develop a strong professional network that will support you throughout your career. You’ll also take part in projects and challenges set by brands, and receive personalised feedback on your work.
Level 3 Fashion Design Mentor Scheme
Working in small groups, we'll assign you an industry mentor during your second year. They’ll meet with you to discuss, advise and support you on your journey into industry or higher education. Your mentor will offer insight into working in a business, and will help you plan your career goals. You’ll explore routes and opportunities in employment, as well as skills and attributes that will help you take active responsibility for the direction of your career.
Previous students have worked with mentors from New Look, Zara, Bestseller and Pritch
48 Hour Challenge
These quick challenges develop your skills in time management and working to tight deadlines within a team. You’ll spend 48 hours working in small groups to create solutions to a challenge currently faced by industry. A Visiting Industry Expert will then evaluate your work, giving you valuable, personalised feedback and teaching you how the industry would react in similar circumstances.
During some of your projects, an Industry Expert will visit to give contextual direction to your work, and give you feedback on what you've created. They'll give insight and support, helping you to develop your knowledge and successfully complete your project.
Previous Visiting Industry Experts have come from Sweaty Betty, ASOS, Diesel and PVH.
