Having heard from Fashion and Textile industry professionals in recent weeks, MGGS GCSE Textiles students are now beginning to consider which post 18 courses might help them pursue similarly exciting career choices themselves. To support them in this process, we recently partnered with Southampton Solent University who delivered a virtual talk for fashion students in Years 10 and 11. The university tutors discussed the range of fashion and textile courses available and showed us an array of exciting and creative degree level work. With fashion and textiles becoming an increasingly popular subject choice, this virtual talk was both informative and inspiring.
If any other students are interested in attending an open day, they can find all the information here: https://www.solent.ac.uk/open-days. The university also has some virtual sessions students can sign up to if they are interested in learning more, including a Q+A panel with the full fashion team: https://www.solent.ac.uk/events?type=future-solent-students
