Since 1983 we have:

  • Launched over 170 professional courses and programmes

We work closely with renowned experts and practitioners from all over the world to deliver courses that help students and professionals succeed in the fashion, textile and footwear industries. Maintaining such close industry relationships – both locally and globally – means we can also identify skills and knowledge gaps, and create training programmes specifically designed to plug them.

Our programmes are not only developed and delivered by industry experts, but are reviewed and endorsed by a who’s who of fashion. Graduating students are able to start their careers with relevant working knowledge and benefit from our close industry connections.

As well as the pursuit of knowledge, we greatly believe in the development of robust work ethics, a positive attitude and an industrious spirit. We welcome you to join us as you take your first exciting steps into our dynamic industry.
