Introduction to Clothing - Short Courses

Garment specification --- 3 March 2016

The product development process - 17 March 2016

The Textile Institute is delighted to launch a new series of Short Courses.

Six separate courses will provide a basic introduction to the subject and are intended for anyone just starting a career in the clothing industry whether this be at operative level; a new graduate from another discipline, or management level coming from another industry sector.

Each course is one full day and delegates may choose to attend individual courses or build up a body knowledge by attending some or all of the courses.

The curriculum has been developed with the financial support of CAPITB Trust, an independent charity providing support and funding for “people employed or about to be employed in the British clothing industry”.
