As part of a new expansion, Platform One are opening a new Fashion Department in the heart of Newport. Alongside the Sustainable Fashion Degree we are launching an extended diploma in Fashion for Post 16 students.

This is an incredible opportunity for 16-19 year olds.


Fashion and Sustainability

Alongside the Sustainable Fashion Degree, this course will focus on training designers, makers and innovators.
