Apprenticeships in the
fashion industry

All courses offered by MITA Academy include an 800-hours apprenticeship at important fashion, accessories and leather goods firms. In order to truly become Made in Italy professionals, our students need to get in direct contact with the product, its design and realization process, along with the entire production chain and the people who work in it.

Partnerships with the best companies
MITA collaborates with over 170 businesses within the region. Tuscany hosts numerous companies that operate in the fashion industry; therefore, it offers great opportunities for mutually enriching partnerships. MITA’s partners include manufacturers of leather garments and accessories, clothing brands, small family businesses but also big names of the fashion world.

Our goal: promote students’ employability
Thanks to these collaborations, it is possible to anticipate the demand for specialized professionals and offer to our students the chance to experience a real working environment. Through the apprenticeship, our students have the opportunity to learn from hands-on practice, gain experiential know-how and familiarize with an actual work team.
An apprenticeship in the fashion business involves the acquisition of technical and relational skills that are hardly achievable in class.
The internship period is decisive for the professional development of our students, because allows them to put into practice what they have learnt during the course and, most of all, to make contact with prestigious firms to which they would not have access otherwise. In many cases, our apprenticeships conclude with the student’s hiring: 90% of our students find employment within one year of completing their studies.
