Textile Manufacturing Operative Apprenticeship Level 2 - Bridgwater & Taunton College

Course Overview

You need to be employed to start an Apprenticeship. Please visit our vacancy page or if you have an employer, please ensure you add full contact details of your employer within your application. If you are unable to secure employment, you could enrol on a full-time study programme and transfer to an Apprenticeship at a later date. Please apply for a full-time course as your second option.

This course is for individuals interested in the textile industry working to make items from carpets to cloth/fabric. The apprenticeship is mainly delivered in the workplace, where employees work alongside experienced staff to gain specific skills, whilst also receiving tuition from the College. The Apprenticeship enables an employee to fill specific skills gaps, adapt to new opportunities and technologies whilst the employer will train the apprentice in their own way, passing on skills that have been acquired over many years.

You need to enjoy working in a practical way and within a team, and be keen to train both at work and at College.

Studying Fashion Business and Retail at Bridgwater and Taunton College was the best choice I could have made. The staff team are probably the most helpful and fun to learn with teachers I’ve ever had and have really shared their love for the subject and industry with me. Next year I am going onto the Art and Design Foundation Diploma to help build my portfolio whilst I continue to work on developing my own clothing brand.
