The leather industry today is a global business with links from the farm to top brands such as Aston Martin, Virgin Atlantic, Clarks shoes, Nike and Burberry. With its current shortage of technically skilled staff, and an increased demand on the leather industry itself, they are actively searching for well-trained graduates for a range of roles including research, quality control, supply chain traceability and other technical positions.
This one year full-time course is the perfect introduction to help you go straight into the leather industry. You will get a thorough grounding in leather and its requirements through a practical approach in our laboratories, underpinned by essential theory.
This course is a balance of theory and practical work, which is based in the tannery or laboratories. You will gain and expand your understanding of leather manufacture and the properties of leather, while discovering the process of leather manufacture from raw hide or skin to finished leather. You will learn the value, properties and quality of raw and part-processed material in relation to their future use.
Half of this course is compulsory, with modules on Leather Technology and Raw Materials and End Use. You can then specialise the rest of your studies to suit your interests.
