Holts to support the industry with training and consultancy programme.

Holts Academy is launching a full service training and consultancy programme for the jewellery industry at this year’s International Jewellery London (IJL) at Olympia.

Following the successful launch of its professional retail development programme, Holts Academy is broadening its offer to include CAD and production consultancy, jewellery manufacture, recruitment and assistance with apprenticeships and traineeships.


Through its retail development programme, Holts Academy has secured partnerships with Astley Clarke, Beaverbrooks, Justice and TK Maxx to assist their retail staff.

At IJL, Holts Academy will host workshops titled ‘Product Knowledge Means Sales’ and ‘Maximising Your Jewellery Sales’. In addition, they will offer free one-to-one private consultancy to businesses interested in retail development, CAD design and hiring an apprentice or trainee.

Businesses attending the IJL retail workshops will be entered into a free draw to win £500 worth of development training, while visitors can also enter daily competitions to win £500 worth of free training.

Retailers who sign up for training with Holts Academy during IJL will get a special 10% discount. To book in for a 30-minute session call Chrissie on 020 7495 0197 or email Chrissie.Bolger@holtsacademy.com.

IJL will take place at Olympia from August 31 to September 2 2014.
