// Boohoo Group partners with Fashion Enter to allow people to apply for level-three and level-four apprenticeships
// The group has funded £85,000 of its Apprenticeship Levy to Fashion Enter’s new academy
Boohoo Group has teamed up with not-for-profit London-based manufacturer Fashion Enter to provide the opportunity for people to apply for level-three and level-four apprenticeships.
The online group, which includes Boohoo, BoohooMan, PrettyLittleThing, MissPap, Nasty Gal, Karen Millen, Coast, Oasis and Warehouse, has funded £85,000 of its Apprenticeship Levy to Fashion Enter’s new academy.
Fashion Enter will offer training and arrange placements for the students on behalf of the Boohoo Group, with a focus on candidates from under-represented communities within the Leicestershire area.
The application process begins on February 7, which is the first day of National Apprenticeship Week.
Those with an interest in getting into the fashion industry can apply for either a level-three fashion studio assistant course, or a level-four product technologists’ course via Fashion Enter.
Boohoo Group recently opened the doors to its first UK manufacturing facility, at Thurmaston Lane in Leicester.
“We are pleased to be able to utilise some of our Apprenticeship Levy outside of the business to create opportunities for individuals who might otherwise not have had access,” Boohoo Group’s responsible sourcing and product operations director, Andrew Reaney said.
“We have a long-standing partnership with our Leicester suppliers and activities like this cement our commitment to both them and UK manufacturing in general.”
