Employability - Working in Fashion

What skills do you need to work in the fashion industry?

Divide the class into groups and ask them to look at one of the categories of fashion-related jobs.  They must research the job, find out what it entails and what skills or qualifications are needed.  The following website will be useful for this activity:

The groups can also interview older pupils who may work in fashion stores, or others they know who work in the fashion industry to find out more about what their job involves.

Each group will produce a small fact-file on the roles they have researched.  This can be worked into a website or a class display.
