Best Fashion Schools in Accra, Requirements & Contact Details
Vocational education has become very competitive in recent times, that is why there are many fashion and creative arts schools to teach and equip individuals who have a passion for fashion designing and illustrations. The industry has stepped up their game, seamstresses are now called fashion designers and they are gaining so much income from learning this trade.
These institutions do not only do certificate programs but also award Diplomas and degrees to trainees at the end of their courses. Depending on the school, they may need your WASSCE, SSSCE, BECE, or O’ Level GCE certificate to apply, some will take you in even without a certificate.
