Level 3 Fashion Retail

This Fashion Retail course is an excellent alternative to an apprenticeship, running over two full days per week allowing you to work part-time alongside. This option is ideal for those who know they want to work in the fashion industry, but aren’t quite sure in what capacity.

You’ll learn about the fashion retail environment as a whole – from what happens on the shop floor, to the importance of a brand’s digital presence. This is essential for understanding the structure of a fashion business, and also how the various roles all function and intersect. You’ll examine fashion futures, and key concerns impacting the industry, such as globalisation and sustainability.

Some of the core modules will be fashion Marketing, Buying, Visual Merchandising and learning how the supply chain process fit each other along with the retail management structure.

Your learning will be supplemented and enhanced by a three-week placement, as well as masterclasses from well-known names in the industry, such as Zalando, New Look, and TK Maxx. What’s more, the tutors on the L3 Fashion Retail course have all worked in the industry, and have masses of knowledge and experience to share with students.

The L3 course combines hands-on and theoretical learning, gaining you practical, technical and creative skills. You’ll have the opportunity to work on unique and exciting projects designed to expand and test your knowledge of the industry and market.

Upon completion you will be in an ideal position for a specialist L4 course, a degree at a university or an apprenticeship with a fashion brand. This L3 Fashion Retail course allows you to keep your options open, it will also equip you with all the skills you’ll need to succeed in a fashion retail career.
