     Routes to Achieveing  Accreditation and Approved Educational Programs


The Textile Institute accredit a wide range of courses globally within all areas of textiles, clothing and footwear. Students who graduate from these courses can apply for their professional qualifications after a shorter period of work experience.

What are the Advantages of Accreditation to the Educational Establishment?

Accreditation of programmes benefits the establishment by:

  • setting the department/establishment in the focus of the world textile community
  • including the establishment in the listing of leading international textile education bodies
  • facilitating the maintenance of educational standards between different countries and specialisations
  • providing an indication of programme quality and excellence of provision by an international peer-assessment process
  • providing further opportunities for graduates to take up textiles-based careers

One application form should be completed per course.  The Professional Qualifications Committee will decide whether the course should be considered at LTI or ATI level.
