Want to earn while you learn? 

An apprenticeship is an ideal way for you to earn while you learn in a real job whilst gaining a real qualification and working towards a real future. 

Whether it’s your first job or your next step, being an apprentice means being fully employed with all the usual staff benefits. You will study with our industry experts and like-minded people who will offer you great support.

We work with local employers to find them their perfect apprentice.

Makers HQ is a unique and visionary community interest company created to provide cut, make and trim services to the fashion industry, with a strong focus on achieving ethical, British manufacture. Launched by Plymouth College of Art and Millfields Trust in 2018, Makers HQ seeks to not only bring together academic institutions, businesses, designers, makers and members of the local community to create a sustainable and innovative new business model for the fashion and textiles sector in Plymouth, but to reignite the city’s rich heritage in fashion and textile manufacture, with the site of Makers HQ formerly acting as home to the Jaeger clothing factory, until its closure in 1997.
