Through our Workplace Training Program, The Fashion Institute provides a pathway for students to gain hands on experience within the industry. This program paves the way for students to develop invaluable skills, which will open the doors to a fulfilling career in fashion.
All students of The Fashion Institute become part of our exclusive workplace training program and our Internship coordinator tailors each program to suit individual aspirations and career goals. This close collaboration ensures placements that are relevant to each student's unique interests and talents.
The Fashion Institute has a reputation for consistently providing our internship partners with high calibre candidates and providing our students tailored work placement opportunities.
The support The Fashion Institute provides doesn't stop when you graduate. We continue to closely assist past students in finding jobs that suit their goals, skills and experience. Our Careers Manager is available to provide support on writing cover letters, building resumes or preparing for interviews to help you succeed in the industry.
In addition to this The Fashion Institute provides current and graduated students access to our database of internship and job opportunities through our careers log in page and extends invitations to our Industry Guest Speaker sessions and Networking Events.

WHO WHAT WEAR
"We were finding it difficult to recruit people who have a hunger to work in a fast-paced environment. The Fashion Institute students show a keen interest in expanding their digital knowledge and a hunger to look to the future and that's why we want to work with them!"
"THE ICONIC is a great advocate of The Fashion Institute. They focus on the student experience and an interactive learning experience, which are parallel to our learning on the job culture. We are able to connect with fashion-orientated students with great initiative and drive to grow their careers and give them exposure to the exciting fast-paced environment that is online retail."
"The students all put in so much hard work and we are truly grateful for their help."
"We always look forward to meeting The Fashion Institute students. Their enthusiasm, help and positive energy backstage always make for a great parade! We have now employed several students from The Fashion Institute."
"The students we've worked with from The Fashion Institute have been such great assets to our office. We look forward to working with more of them in the future."
