Announcing exciting changes to the Diploma in Silver Jewellery

· · Comments

We have completely revamped our Diploma in Silver Jewellery for September. Based on feedback from students and our knowledge of the jewellery industry we are confident that this is the best course on the market to prepare you to set up your own business. Read on to find out more ..

Diploma in Silver Jewellery

We have been running our Diplomas for a number of years now and this is the biggest change we have made to the programme since it's inception. Based on what our graduates have gone on to do plus our knowledge of the jewellery industry we have made some big changes to the course to really help prepare our graduates to start their own business. These changes include a complete overhaul of the modules and some brand new training in working with gold, making wedding rings, working to commission and more.

Who is the Diploma in Silver Jewellery for?
This course has been designed for those that would like to learn and develop their skills as a jeweller. Complete beginners are welcome as are those with some experience looking to complete a Diploma qualification. Graduates will likely start their own businesses or find work with a jeweller. Previous students have included those that wanted to train for a change in career or start their own business so they could work for themselves from home.
The course is run in one, intensive study day per week which allows you to fit it into current commitments e.g. work, education, caring for others etc. We have had people travel each week from as far as Ireland, Newcastle and Poole!
For a September 2019 start, we still have a few places left for Mondays.

If you aren't sure if the course is for you do book in for one of our careers consultations. Our General Manager Mireille will talk to you about your ambitions and will advise you on your best next step with your best interests at the centre of the conversation. We want to ensure that everyone on the course will succeed and Mireille will let you know if a different path would be better.
Call on 0203 176 0546 or email info@londonjewelleryschool.co.uk to book a time.
