UKFT Rise for Education Partners

Emerging designers and entrepreneurs are at the heart of our industry and UKFT is committed to helping them flourish. UKFT Rise is a free to join supportive community of likeminded people for start-up fashion and textile businesses that are less than 3 years old.

We help our Education Partners support new talent to set up their own businesses by offering access to UKFT Rise benefits with added extras.

Enhanced access for you

All UKFT Rise resources and a back catalogue of webinars are available to UKFT Education Partners to use and share with students.

Staff within Education Partners are extended an ongoing access to the programme so that they can pass on the benefits to their students.*

Enhanced access for your students

UKFT Rise is available to final year and MA students from our Education Partners for an extra year which means they will be able to enjoy the perks of the community for three years rather than two in recognition that the business may be in the very early stages when they join.

Your students will also be offered access to events and webinars for free!
