/ Graduate Programme 2017/18


The FTDC recruits a select number of fashion and textile graduates and college leavers annually, to take part in a 6-month commercial development programme.

 

 

 

The programme starts in September and offers an intensive course which takes the graduates from the initial design concept, through to creating and managing their own commercial business. The steps include:

 

  • Creative concept
  • Design and technical design process
  • Technical garment process
  • Finance & funding
  • Legal services
  • Marketing
  • Manufacturing
  • Showcasing and Sales

 

The programme is run by Industry professionals with access to full time technicians and machinists.  Workshops and one to one mentoring are provided on a monthly basis and take place at the critical stages of the programme.

Once the programme has been completed, the designers have the option to move on into the incubator space, provided within the FTDC, to progress with their business, or seek employment within the fashion and textile industry with the help of the FTDC.
