STITCHING SKILLS

In 2013 The Stitching Academy was created in collaboration with Asos.com, DWP and Haringey Council to offer ABC accredited stitching skills qualification at both Level 1 and 2.

Fashion Enter wrote these two qualifications as they did not exist in the country.


The course is taught by industry experts based at the Factory and caters for beginners who can then progress to higher qualifications, run their own businesses by making their own samples, apprenticeships and job outcomes.

We're here to guide you!

Our career advisor lets you explore the different job roles in the fashion industry.
