The Fashion and Textiles framework has ten endorsed pathways to meet the needs of the diverse sector:
Textiles; Apparel; Tailoring; Leather goods; Footwear; Saddlery; Leather Production.

The key technical skills and knowledge covered by this framework are in short supply. A survey of over 2,000 fashion and textiles businesses carried out in 2008 found strong evidence of shortages of potential recruits in the occupational areas addressed by the framework and have been reiterated by the findings of the National Employer Skills survey 2009 and through our continual consultation with employers.
