Fashion Retail Ready


This three-day short course in the October school holidays provides a great introduction to working in the retail industry, with a focus on selling, styling customers and preparing for fashion retail interviews.

Held in our practice retail shop, this hands-on course will expose you to the latest fashion trends in the retail industry. You will gain an understanding of how to clarify customer preferences and expectations and provide recommendations on their sizing and fit requirements, as well as learning effective communication strategies for interacting with customers to provide exceptional customer service.

Our retail industry guest speaker will also provide you with insight into the different strategies that retailers use when interviewing candidates for a fashion retail position to give you a competitive edge when applying for jobs, especially over the busy Christmas period.
