Your career in fashion retail starts here
With University places increasingly hard to come by and tuition fees rising in September 2012, more students wanting to further their education are set with the difficult task of finding alternative routes to career entry and success.
The Fashion Retail Academy offers the perfect solution – it is where your career gets off to a flying start. Not only will you enjoy an inspirational atmosphere where interactive learning is encouraged using the very latest facilities, we'll also make sure that you have the chance to meet the people who matter in the industry so you can see just how relevant your studies are to the real world of high street fashion. It's a great opportunity to gain the skills and experience needed to make you ‘job ready’ for an exciting career in the sector.
The FRA was the first National Skills Academy to be opened in the UK in September 2006 (funded by a public-private partnership) to educate and train people for the modern workplace. Many FRA students have now benefitted from this exciting new venture and successfully developed the skills required for today's fashion retail industry.
