Progression

We all use textiles in our everyday lives, from the clothes that we wear, through to the technical textiles that now make up a big part of the built environment and the cars that we drive.

 

Textile manufacturers report that production was up 25% in the UK last year, with the industry desperate to attract more young people through apprenticeships.

 

Studying Textiles could lead to a wide variety of Further Education opportunities, as well as developing skills for life.
