Careers and opportunities in Textiles across Europe.

Exciting news about an international project our students are working on…


Update. We are back from Milan for the third international partnership meeting. We can’t wait to share what we have found out from our students from our surveys and focus groups and to see of how our findings compare to the findings from across Europe.

The EDU4TEX project intends to support the development of a more attractive and competitive textile & clothing (T&C) industry based on young people who are properly informed, trained and motivated to work in a sector that is no longer perceived as a traditional industry that only offers repetitive, menial and demotivating tasks.

The result of this project shall be a programme of practical, scientific, technical and technological training activities with new, didactic contents related to a wide range of textile & clothing operations providing a new insight into how the sector works. It aims to discuss the opportunities it offers, raise awareness and familiarise young people in specific with the markets, materials, equipment, and standards operating across the sector as they relate to a wide range of occupations. It will illustrate the range of career opportunities available and facilitate the choice of potential vocational and professional career paths supported by structured information, advice and guidance.

Watch this space for developments…

My Art lessons in the Studio School have shown me that it's not what you see, but what you make others see; I've been completely inspired.



With the skills I have developed and opportunities I have been given in the field of Graphic Design, I am positive that it will help me to lead a successful life with a very fulfilling career.



Photography means I can make Art out of real life objects. I love seeing how my skills can create amazing pieces of work, it's very exciting.



Textiles at the Studio School has allowed us to express ourselves, explore different specialist techniques, find our inner creativity and apply it to exciting scenarios.



Learning Business in the Studio School has helped me realise that Business is everywhere and has enabled me to see the world through grown up eyes.



Creative Media Production gives me the skills, confidence and experience to work with external businesses and create professional video products whilst gaining a qualification.



Drama has really helped me to develop skills I can use in all my subjects. I've really grown in confidence because of the way I have been taught.



It's helped me to realise the number of employment opportunities available in the Music Industry, giving me the skills to succeed in any profession. I've developed skills in communication, teamwork, cooperation and Music Technology skills.
