Holts Academy is the UK’s Leading Provider of Industry Training in Jewellery.
Holts Academy was established in 1999 to help to address the skills gaps in the trade. Holts Academy continues as the leading provider in pioneering a wide range of truly industry- responsive nationally recognised Qualifications, Courses, Apprenticeships, Professional Development and Consultancy. They have trained over 10,000 people, contributing to the continued growth of a skilled workforce to ensure the future of the UK jewellery trade.
Holts Academy’s expert practitioner lecturers – each a leader in their own field - coach students from any background to gain the very best traditional and cutting edge skills in jewellery making, design, CAD, business and retail skills. This year Holts Academy launched its Professional Retail Development Programme to give jewellery retailers a bespoke, hands-on development opportunity for their employees.
Long established as a seat of excellence for the delivery of CAD training, Holts Academy now offers CAD Consultancy for jewellery businesses. Our senior CAD lecturer and world jewellery CAD expert, Jack Meyer, will discuss and advise you on how to maximise your use of CAD to benefit your manufacturing process or develop bespoke CAD Master-classes for your employees.
In September 2014 Holts Academy will be launching a new HND qualification in Jewellery to augment its Diploma Programmes and provide a real industry-led alternative higher education route for students, as well as a Post Graduate Skills Top-Up Programme to address the current skills gap between recent graduates and the industry.
