ABC Awards is a leading national awarding organisation with a long-established reputation for high-quality support and services to the educational sector. They have an established reputation for developing high-quality qualifications to support the British fashion industry, even as it faced a steady decline from competition and cheaper production abroad. The awarding organisation’s suite of fashion and textiles qualifications ranges from footwear and leather production to specialist qualifications in pattern cutting, garment technology, and tailoring. They also offer specific qualifications in fashion retail, developed to fuse the gap left in the market between singular fashion and retail programmes.
ABC Awards is also the End-point Assessment Organisation (EPAO) for the Bespoke Tailor and Cutter Level 5 standard, which is approved and registered with the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA). Delivery of this end-point assessment is monitored, on behalf of the Institute for Apprenticeships (IfA), by the External Quality Assurance Organisation, UK Fashion and Textile Association (UKFT). Read more about this standard here.
There are now a number of apprentices registered on this standard and ABC Awards are keen to hear from employers and training providers who are delivering these services or intend to do so in the near future and have not yet confirmed their EPAO arrangements.
