City and Guilds Qualifications


Louise offers City and Guilds Level 2 and Level 3 qualifications in Millinery. Even with limited skills and knowledge, you will be able to commence your studies at Level 2.

  • Level 2 courses commence throughout the year at a pace to suit and once completed many students choose to progress to Level 3 

Due to the current situation classes will be held predominantly via video link (Zoom) with face to face lessons being held on a limited basis when required and safe to do so. Classes take place mainly during the week but limited weekend classes may be arranged to suit.

More information can be found in the links below and please do get in touch with any questions:
