The Institute’s short courses aim to benefit all who are engaged in the manufacture, research and development as well as the commercial aspects of the textile business. The courses cover the fibres, yarns and fabrics used in textile products for apparel, household and technical textile applications as core modules over three days. The third day offers two specialist modules covering dyeing and finishing and fabric testing and analysis.

“These courses aim to provide both comprehensive and informative material, which is always well presented by experts in their fields especially covering the new developments in industry. Anyone attending the courses will certainly leave with a vastly improved knowledge base and the ability to understand the varied aspects of the textile supply chain,” says Course Director, Professor Subhash Anand.

Dates

Two courses are taking place in 2013 in Manchester, UK:

  • February 25 to 27
  • October 14 to 16

The training is provided by senior consultants, professors, and lecturers from many of the UK’s leading universities and businesses; ensuring a broad international perspective is provided to each of the participants.

Previous delegates have attended from Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, UK, Ghana, Pakistan, and Romania.

Attendee Marissa Alves, Research and Development, Footcare at Reckitt Benckiser, comments:

“The course provides a great sound base of information and I personally had the opportunity to gain a lot of knowledge over a few short days and really appreciated the one on one help that was given by many of the training providers.”

The courses are designed to ensure that each participant receives personal attention and is able to individually benefit from the trainers expertise and therefore the courses have restricted numbers of participants and run with between 10-15 people.
