TAKING ON AN INTERN
Work placements or internships are an integral part of the training here. They allow students to apply the knowledge they have acquired during the course and prepare them for the demands of the profession by bringing them into direct contact with it.
MASTERE 1 (Bachelor level) – Design/Pattern-Making
This 4-years course prepares students for professions in :
- CLOTHES, ACCESSORIES, KNITWEAR DESIGN, ASSISTANT AD, …
- PROFESSIONS LINKED TO PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT, ASSISTANT COLLECTION & PRODUCTION MANAGER, PURCHASE MANAGEMENT & SOURCING, …
- PATTERN-MAKER, ASSISTANT HEAD OF WORKSHOP/STUDIES OFFICE, …
At the end of the first two years, a 5-month internship allows students to come face to face with the professional world and discover what the work of fashion-related professions really entails, enabling them to get a clearer idea of the activity that corresponds to their capacities and expectations.
This first internship of the 4-years course will culminate in a written report and each student must do an oral presentation of his/her experience in front of their peers on the first day back at school of the third year. This presentation will be graded and included in the end-of-year results.
At the end of the 4-years course, students must do another compulsory internship in a company for at least 3 months.
A written report of this is also required and graded. The grade is taken into account for the final results of the Masters 1.
Duration : This internship is a compulsory part of the course and starts at the beginning of May and ends in October, coinciding with the presentation of the summer collections. This internship period can be extended to one year starting from the end of the school course.
DESIGN AND pattern-making advanced course
This course with its specific focus on pattern-making is organised around notions of garment quality, comfort and fall. It prepares students for specialized professional activities that often provide the interface between design and production.
This specialized course is only open to students who have already completed a higher-ed course in the fashion/pattern-making domain and who wish to perfect their skills in the field of garment-making.
The teaching is based on a reinforcement of skills needed for the interface between design and production, notably tradional know-how and the practice of pattern-making at a highly proficient level. The aim of this course is to focus the areas of study on the design/garment-making process and arm students with the professional know-how of this process and the methods specific to it.
The course takes place during the school year, from the month of October to the end of the month of May.
Internship period: At the end of May, students can do an internship in a company for a maximum of 6 months, a period which must not extend beyond the end of December.
