Theresa Parker, Betty Jackson BBE and student BA (Hons) Fashion Design students visited Channel 4 recently, for the official launch of the Anne Tyrell Student Design Award.


The award, aimed at students in the 2nd year of a Creative Skillset Ticked Fashion Course, was created in honour of Anne Tyrrell MBE, who inspired and led creativity in education and training for the fashion industry.


The evening included a screening of ‘Making the Cut’, a film featuring Northbrook’s catwalk show at Graduate Fashion Week.  During the film, fashion designer Betty Jackson CBE and employers from John Lewis and Hobbs explain what makes the fashion design courses awarded the Creative Skillset Tick so special.


Northbrook College’s BA (Hons) Fashion Design course was awarded the ‘Creative Skillset Tick’, the industry kitemark of quality, following a rigorous assessment process by experts working in the Creative Industries, including Betty Jackson.


The Creative Skillset Tick in Fashion for degree programmes helps identify the UK’s most industry-focussed courses and signposts these for the recruitment of the very best students and for employers to recruit the brightest talent.
