A fashion career should be aspirational. But not impossible. Working with a network of training providers, we signpost industry recognised provision and clear pathways into good careers in fashion.
We open up paid internships, specialist programmes and new apprenticeships to young east Londoners. To give them experience in digital, admin, design, and head ofﬁce roles at all kinds of fashion brands and retailers.
Working with the industry, we look for skill gaps and target them. Like the new Tailoring Academy, which gives the whole region access to high-quality training.
And we pile on the support for entrepreneurs, too. With business strategy guidance and resources to help them grow. We get pilots up and running. Like the Sustainable Fashion Accelerator with The Trampery.
An upskilled workforce and access to skills training is good for everyone. It attracts manufacturers to London. Attracts talent to London. And encourages them both to stay.
