BESTSELLER ACADEMY OPENS FASHION COLLEGE FOR YOUNG, FASHION-CONSCIOUS STUDENTS.
BRANDE, Denmark, 2016-Jan-22 — /EPR Retail News/ — The new fashion college is a one year education made in cooperation with Viden Djurs, a local business college in the Danish city of Grenaa. The education targets teenagers who have just finished 9th or 10th grade and who wish to study a year of fashion. BESTSELLER’s Fashion College prepares the students to continue their career in one of BESTSELLER’s stores in Denmark.
“BESTSELLER Academy is very interested in recruiting the young people at an early age, and by following them during their college education, we can provide them with a good insight into the BESTSELLER world. Moreover, we can prepare them for how it is to be a store apprentice in BESTSELLER. We will also interview the college students to make sure we find the right talents for our two-year apprentice education,” says Per Bomholt, responsible for BESTSELLER’s apprentice programme.
“During the education the students will also work in our stores for short periods of time, so that they get to try on their knowledge in practice. This will not only prepare the students for their future career, but also help ensure that they understand the theory they have learned at the fashion college. With this new education, we expect to get some well-prepared and qualified young people for our stores,” Per finishes.
The students will live together at a campus and are paid an apprentice salary during the education. In order to attend the fashion college the students must however, pay for accommodation, food and activities. BESTSELLER Academy already has a close cooperation with Viden Djurs regarding our apprentice programme, which is why the business college was a natural collaboration partner for our new Fashion College.
About the Fashion College education
During the education, the students will attend a number of traditional business college courses in subjects such as marketing, business economics and communication as well as IT and English. The education will be a combination of class teaching, group work and case studies. Besides this, the college students will go on study trips abroad and various company visits and also take up internships in BESTSELLER stores.
The first fashion college students will start up in August 2016. The goal is to recruit 25 students.
BESTSELLER Academy will be present at ‘DM i skills’ next month in Fredericia, Denmark.
