Carpet qualification improved

20
Jun '09
UK-based carpet manufacturers can now access an improved qualification to help train staff in the technical aspects of production.

The new Certificate in Textile Technology places more emphasis on sample analysis, the employee's ability to determine the properties of yarns and carpet structure, and understanding of production processes. The aim is to build learners' ability to diagnose and remedy production issues.

The revised content of the qualification was co-ordinated by Skillfast-UK, the Sector Skills Council for fashion and textiles, in collaboration with employers.

Training and assessment for the Certificate in Textile Technology is currently available from the Textile Centre of Excellence in Huddersfield. However, Skillfast-UK is keen to hear from employers in other parts of the UK who are interested in training their staff using this qualification, as they may be able to assist in arranging local training delivery.
