Industrial Textile Fabrication Apprenticeship

Accelerate your career with a nationally recognised qualification!

The textile fabric industry is looking for the next generation of fabricators.  MITO offer the following qualifications:

  • National Certificate in Industrial Textile Fabrication (Level 3)

Industrial textiles are everywhere! From tents, sails and vehicle upholstery to trampolines, marquees and inflatable boats, this programme combines practical skills with plenty of challenges and exciting long-term opportunities.

OFPANZ offers incredible opportunities for apprentices to get recognized in the industry through our annual awards.

For more information about the Apprenticeship visit the MITO website or download the Industrial Textile Fabrication factsheet.  MITO also offer Business Skills which are ideal for our industry.

At our annual conference every year we recognise the top apprentice of the year. Beginner apprentices are tasked to fabricate a messenger bag while more experienced apprentices are tasked to create something unique. They write about the fabric they chose to use, the technique used as well as the challenges they faced when creating their piece.  This year’s Apprentice of the Year went to Tom Marriott from Peter May Ltd.

We look forward to seeing the 2020 Apprentice of the Year projects.
