Paul Hamilton CCol ASDC, Technical Director Bulmer and Lumb Group Ltd commented:

“This course is a direct response to the needs of the UK dyeing industry which is growing in confidence and I’m glad the SDC has been able to deliver a course that provides the necessary training for the industry. I would recommend any dyehouse which needs to educate the next generation of dyers to invest in their personnel through this course.”

The course is being overseen by the Society’s Education, Qualification and Accreditation Board (EQAB). The SDC has developed the structure, syllabus and content of the course as well as delivering it. Foundation Textile Coloration Certificate (FTCC) is a one year course primarily concerned with giving candidates a grounding in fundamental organic chemistry related to textile substrates and dyes. It is a perfect stepping stone to the two year course Textile Coloration Certificate (TCC), taking the candidate further, highlighting the chemistry and application of dyes and the interactions with textile substrates. The full list of modules can be found in the TCC prospectus 2017, covering areas of Textile Chemistry, Colour Physics, Dyeing Theory and Printing. Ultimately, it will enable candidates to be educated to Associate (ASDC) level in years 4 and 5. The course places an emphasis on the candidates ‘learning to learn’ as much as the learning itself. The content will be challenging, and will encourage self motivation, learning and planning – all skills necessary for a working life. The course is delivered via on line training and residentials.

Details of the course can be found in the TCC Prospectus 2017.

The programme is designed for people working in dyehouses, chemical and dye manufacturers and anyone involved in the textile industry who believes a greater chemical knowledge of the industry will be of benefit to them.
