The Anderson & Sheppard Apprentices

By Oliver on 15th April, 2013


Jennie has worked so hard and it was great to see her do so well at the Golden Shears this year. At Anderson & Sheppard, apprenticeships play a really important role in securing the continued success of what we do and Jennie has proven this.

On the evening of the Golden Shears a group of us went to offer our support. We all had a great night and it was particularly nice to see our company so well represented and by so many of a new generation of tailors and cutters.

In the photo are a group of us,  all at different stages of our training. Having served my time (in a non custodial sense of course!) I have now become a Junior Trouser cutter and have many of my own clients. Also pictured is Sunna (pictured third in from the right) who has finished her apprenticeship and is now working as a qualified Coat maker. Some of the others in the photo are either beginning their apprenticeships or in the middle of them. Emily (pictured far right), is the newest of our apprentices and has just begun her training as a Coat maker.

A number of our apprentices have come via Newham College, and if you are thinking about a career in our profession, it is certainly a place to consider starting at.
