David Beckham and model Adwoa Aboah launched a Fashion Studio Assistant apprenticeship at Prendergast Vale School in Lewisham, UK. The Level 3 apprenticeship was developed by fashion businesses with the British Fashion Council (BFC) providing the secretariat, and UK Fashion & Textile association (UKFT) as the external quality assurance provider (EQAP).

The apprenticeship aims to inspire a new generation of people to enter the UK fashion industry in non-design roles. A Fashion Studio Assistant is a key position in the UK fashion industry, working with the team that creates a collection. This apprenticeship will introduce candidates to the fashion industry, with experience gained in both the product and commercial sides of a brand. In a large company, this role would be more focused on the studio, but in a smaller company this role may also be involved in many other areas of the business, according to UKFT.

The apprenticeship starts in the heart of a designer business: The Studio, to learn about how a collection is created. The apprentice will spend the first six months learning about the core skills covering areas such as critical path management. It will then lead to 12 months in a more focused area of the business, with the apprentice choosing to specialise in one of three pathways: product development and production; sales and operations; or fashion marketing and communications.

Following on from the 18-month training, the apprentice will undertake an independent end-point assessment that has been derived by industry experts in this field.

“Apprenticeships offer a great way to get into the UK fashion industry and we are delighted that David Beckham is here to help promote the vast opportunities that exist for creative young talent in non-design roles in our sector. There are now 13 new apprenticeships available in England for fashion and textiles, with more on the way, and a variety of vocational routes through the National Occupational Standards and Modern Apprenticeships in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland,” Adam Mansell, CEO of UKFT said.

“It is incredible to be able to support career opportunities for young people who might not want to pursue higher education. There are a lot of roles out there that need to be filled by skilled workers; the fashion industry is highly dependent on those roles and we hope that this will strengthen our industry and make it more accessible by being able to offer this exciting new Fashion Studio Apprenticeship,” Caroline Rush, chief executive of BFC said.
