Course Information

This one year course allows you to progress from our Leathersellers’ Certificate. The knowledge and experience you will gain from this course will allow you to find work in the leather industry at various stages of the leather supply chain. You will study the practical elements of leather science, underpinned by essential theory.

The course is mostly practical and you will spend much of your time working in the tannery or laboratories. The practical work helps you to learn all the skills you need by developing an in-depth understanding of the manufacturing process as well as the properties of leather. Half of the course is made up of compulsory modules, allowing you to specialise your studies in the other half.
