SUCCESS BREEDS SUCCESS - BFA EXTENDS FOUNDATION COURSE


The British Footwear Association (BFA) Foundation Course in Footwear
Technology – by the industry, for the industry – has been voted a success.

The first year saw 28 trainees from ten footwear companies completing the
ten-module course. The feedback from the trainees and their companies has
been enthusiastic and amendments have been made for 2012 in light of these.

The second year of the Foundation Course commences on January 2012.

Additionally, due to industry demand, a shorter version of the course for
commercial trainees will also be offered. This edited course will focus on the
fundamentals of shoe making and materials, and include visits to UK
factories to see shoes in production.

Richard Kottler, CEO of the BFA commented:” The BFA anticipates that the
edited course will draw trainees from footwear manufacturers, importers and
some retailers, from the buying, merchandising and supply chain disciplines,
as opposed to career technical managers.

“We at the BFA are delighted that the Foundation Course has been so well
received by the footwear industry and are proud of being the initiator of this
industry led training programme designed to raise standards in the UK.”
