Course content

Bespoke tailoring is a highly-skilled, specialist profession that involves exacting standards of expertise and reliability. This course builds on the experience gained studying on the Pre-Apprentice Level 1 course, or through previous experience in tailoring.

You will learn in a variety of ways - through talks and demonstrations, by completing practical tasks and exercises, by independent study and by evaluation and assessment of your work. The course includes industry research and report writing, and identifying the employment role that best suits your abilities and aspirations. English, maths and IT will form an integral part of your studies on the course.

The course is based at Newham College's East Ham Campus in modern, well-equipped garment production and pattern cutting workshops.
