The BFC Colleges Council is guided by a steering committee of academics from some of the BFC Colleges Council members. It’s an essential part of our long-term plan to help govern and evolve the BFC Colleges Council programme as well as making sure we address key challenges facing minority communities in gaining fair representation within the fashion industry and beyond. The Committee’s priorities include supporting the BFC to set the bar for accountability and best practice for all fashion universities, acting as a student and university representative, and harnessing relationships between education and the industry.
This is voluntary and not a paid opportunity. You have to work at a BFC Colleges Council member to apply.
