Technical Textiles

Level 4 Technical Textiles Apprenticeships 

The Textile Centre of Excellence, from 1st September 2012, will launch the very first level 4 vocational qualification in Technical Textiles. The Centre led the development of this new qualification based on evidence of demand from the industry following our dedicated consultation phase. Working with the Sector Skills Council (Creative Skillset), ABC Awards and the North West Textile Network (NWTEXNET),  2 framework pathways are available- Technical Textiles and Product Development/Sourcing.

Modules have been developed by the Centre to cover the key areas of technical textile applications and functionality such as Fibres and Technical Textiles, Fire and Heat Resistance, Stain Resistance, UV Resistance and Treatments, Anti-microbial Textile Applications, Fabric Wear and Durability, Breathability, Anti-static and Conductive Textiles, Bio-degradable Textiles, Outsourcing Manufacturing, Strategic Marketing, Managing Intellectual Property and Global Business Management.
