Introduction to The Jewellery Business Short Course

Course description

For anyone setting out on a career or academic studies related to the jewellery industry, finding out about the scope and scale of the industry can be difficult. However, help is at hand. This weekend beginners course will provide some useful pointers to anyone contemplating a career switch, or even those already in the industry who want to learn more. 

The course will reveal many unseen and unknown aspects of the jewellery business, from market stall to luxury brands.

Who should take this course?

This course is suitable for people new to the industry who would like to pursue a career in the industry either as an employee or running their own jewellery business. It does not prepare you for a job in the industry but will give you a good idea of your options and a starting point for your research.

Clear, easy to understand lessons: 

  • Our tutors will explain things in easy to understand, accessible English. If they need to use any special terminology they will make sure they explain what they mean. 
  • New methods will be shown to students through live demonstrations, in a way that’s crystal clear and easy to understand. 

Experience life on campus

  • Access the technology and materials relevant to your discipline 
  • Shop in our college shops for any materials you might need 
  • Ask questions of your tutor in real time

  • Experience the many sights of London on your down time 

A certificate of completion: 

  • You've put the work in so we want to make sure you have something to show for it! 
  • As long as you attend a minimum of 80% of your classes, we will provide you with a certificate of attendance. 
  • We always recommend you attend all of the classes so that you get the most out of the experience! 
  • Certificates are great to complement your cv.
