FashionTT & NEDCO Training Sessions Are Now Online
Port of Spain, 24th March 2020: On Saturday 25th January, the Trinidad and Tobago Fashion Industry Company Limited (FashionTT) and National Entrepreneurship Development Company Limited (NEDCO) launched the 2020 Entrepreneurial Development Programme (EDP) training workshops with the first workshop in Brand Building and Development. These workshops provide training and mentorship in the core fundamentals of business and were to be hosted three Saturdays per month until October 2020. In light of the Coronavirus restrictions placed on the nation for its safety, FashionTT has decided to take its Entrepreneurial Development Programme (EDP) training workshops online.
All fashion designers within the Value Chain Investment Programme (VCIP) are invited to attend this online workshop. This Programme currently has 51 designers in its EDP and 66 designers in the Business Advisory (BA - mentorship/financing) Programme. Designers who are not part of these programmes, but would like to register for the online workshop, can do so by registering on the link provided on FashionTT’s social media pages.
This first online session, Contract Law, will be held on Saturday 28th March from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. The online meeting link will be provided to all registered persons by Thursday 26th March.
“We are aware of what is currently happening in the country and the world,” stated Lisa-Marie Daniel, General Manager of FashionTT, “and we are doing what we can to ensure the safety of our staff and stakeholders while still providing them with access to the training needed to create, grow and sustain a successful business.”
FashionTT will continue the roll out of its full 9-month programme of workshops including topics such as Developing a Business Plan; Costing and Pricing; Record Keeping and Cash Management; Marketing; Social Media for SMEs and more. These workshops will be conducted on the online platform until further notice.
