New fashion studio assistant apprenticeship launches

A new fashion studio assistant apprenticeship has been approved by the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education.

The official launch of the 400th new apprenticeship coincides with the beginning of London Fashion Week. 

It was developed by employers from across the UK fashion industry: the British Fashion Council was appointed as the secretariat and the UK Fashion and Textile Association is the external quality assurance provider. 

Jasper Conran and designer Roksanda were also involved in its development. 

The apprenticeship aims to ”deliver specific skills that will ultimately contribute to all levels of a fashion business, developing leaders and teams to work alongside home-grown design talent, as well as making Britain the best place to incubate a new business from initial idea to commercial sustainability.”

Caroline Rush, chief executive of the British Fashion Council, said: “We are delighted to be launching the apprenticeship for fashion studio assistant, the 400th new government apprenticeship. Inspiring more young people to work in the creative industries without necessarily having to take the university route will help to ensure that the fashion industry continues to attract the best talent.”
