  • Why choose this qualification?

    The Gateway Qualifications Fashion Industries qualification suite is aimed at learners who are seeking employment in the fashion industries or who are already in the fashion industry but are looking to develop new skills or hone existing ones. The suite of qualifications is written and structured to link technical and practical skills with creative skills in a way that will encourage and appeal to a broad range of learners.

    The choice of available sizes of qualification and the range of units available within the individual qualifications is designed to give learners considerable flexibility of learning without constraining them to a specific route within the industry (for example, tailoring, pattern cutting, fashion design, garment construction).

    The qualification suite will provide learners with the opportunity to explore different routes within the industry and thus to identify a suitable apprenticeship scheme or other opportunity, giving employers the confidence that entrants already understand the context of the industry and the employment roles and career opportunities it offers.

    The Gateway Qualifications Skills for the Fashion Industries qualification suite enables progression to employment, further learning opportunities within employment, further study including internal progression within the suite, or to higher-level sector specific qualifications.

    Level 1 qualifications are designed to introduce the knowledge and skills required by the sector, while Level 2 qualifications will equip individuals for entry level jobs in the sector and Level 3 qualifications will equip them for more skilled employment.

    The qualifications within the suite can also be progressive and cumulative with the credits achieved within the Awards contributing to the Certificates and from there to the Diplomas.

    The qualifications can also provide a stepping stone to further specific training and skills development through structured training programmes such as an apprenticeship or Foundation Degree.

    The Certificate, Extended Certificate, Diploma and Extended Diploma qualifications have been developed with a choice of mandatory units that encourage the development of understanding of how the industry operates and how the individual’s abilities can be developed towards successful employment. These qualifications introduce the range of employment opportunities the sector offers and guide the learner towards industry-specific subjects in order for them to gain the appropriate skills and knowledge required by employers.

    The Level 3 Diplomas are offer progression onto higher education programmes including Foundation Degrees.
