First time funding is available for training in the sewing products industry in Scotland.

The UK Fashion and Textile Association (UKFT) announced it has secured the future of the Scottish Modern Apprenticeship in Fashion and Textiles Heritage at SCQF Level 5 and added a new additional pathway on the training for ‘Sewn Products’. It is also a training ground for those who want to be kilt-makers and bespoke tailors.

“Not only is it meeting the immediate skills gap for ‘made in Scotland’ production, it is also the fundamental first steps for maintaining artisan and heritage trades in Scotland.”
