Fashion Express Learning offers courses on Pattern Construction, Fashion Design, Pattern Grading and Virtual Factory. You can choose to register on one or more courses, depending on your requirements. You can choose to study a theme as a complete module, or you can choose to study shorter sub-modules from each theme.
fashionexpresslearning.co.uk courses can certainly give you the knowledge and skills required. Our courses have been running successfully for a number of years with very good results. If you follow the course, you will develop the skills and knowledge required to let you turn your garment ideas from imagination into reality. And although we can’t guarantee you’ll be the next Versace or Vivienne Westwood, the fashionexpresslearning.co.uk course will give you the skills and confidence to start creating your own garments. After that, who knows what might happen?
Our courses have proven extremely successful over a number of years and are used in a number of institutions worldwide already. Now you can benefit from that experience from the comfort of your own home and study at your own pace, with the reassurance of knowing that there is always a helping hand via the fashionexpresslearning.co.uk website if you have any difficulties.
Of course. You can select modules or part of modules to suit your requirements. If all you want to do is learn how to make an outfit for a special occasion, then you can. Remember though, that whatever your goal, you will have to learn the basics first. Our courses are delivered in organised, structured modules that are designed to be studied in a certain order and you will be guided through all the modules required to meet your goal. If you have a goal in mind, but are unsure of which modules you should register for, contact us by email and we will be happy to assist you in tailoring your course to meet your needs.
Unfortunately not. The Core Application Software contains a lot of information including video clips and is large in size. The time it would take to download over the internet is prohibitive, and therefore we have produced a CD-ROM from which you can install the software. By using a CD-ROM, it also means that if you have any problems with your computer, you can reload the software without going through a lengthy download process again.
This will depend on which courses you take. The ‘Available Courses’ section gives more information on the length of each course.
fashionexpresslearning.co.uk will supply the drafting template and instructions as part of the course. You will need to buy basic drafting tools and perhaps other equipment, depending on which courses you are taking. The basic drafting tools required are: Drafting paper, pencil, eraser, scissors, pins, tape measure. You should be able to buy all your equipment at a haberdashery store.
You will be assigned an Online Tutor (OT) when you start your course. If you experience any difficulties or have any problems, you should contact your OT via the student pages of the fashionexpresslearning.co.uk website. Your OT is there to help you through your studies every step of the way.
If you have a problem with your OT then you can contact fashionexpresslearning.co.uk using the confidential email address provided to you for this purpose.
The fashionexpresslearning.co.uk courses are home study courses, and therefore you will not receive a qualification from eTelestia. However, our courses are recognised by a number of examining bodies, higher education institutions and other bodies worldwide and can be used towards a recognised qualification in many instances. For more information on how you can use your eTelestia course towards a recognised qualification, please contact us by email, stating which course(s) you are taking or are interested in and your country of residence.
A CD-ROM will be sent to you by mail, which contains our Core Application Software. Using this, together with your unique username and password, which we will also supply, you will be able to download your assignments over the Internet to your chosen computer and then study in your own time.
