The ABC Level 5 Diploma in Bespoke Tailoring has been designed to meet the requirements of the bespoke tailoring trailblazer apprenticeship standards. These apprenticeship standards have been developed by a group of prestigious employers from the bespoke garment production industry, including The Savile Row Bespoke Association.

The ABC Level 5 Diploma in Bespoke Tailoring is a regulated qualification which sits on the Regulated Qualification Frameworks. It is comprised of one mandatory unit with a choice of specialised pathways in either tailoring and/or cutting. The qualification is designed to support learners who would like to learn and be able to demonstrate highly skilled cutter and/or tailoring techniques and workmanship which could promote career opportunities within the bespoke and luxury garment market.


The qualification can be used to show achievement of the skills and competency required for the Bespoke Tailoring Apprenticeship Standards. Therefore learners could progress onto the end point assessment which is required for full achievement of the Bespoke Tailoring Apprenticeship. Learners may also progress to employment as a highly skilled tailor and/or cutter within the bespoke and luxury garment market.

Centres should be aware that Reasonable Adjustments which may be permitted for assessment may in some instances limit a learners progression into the sector. Centres must, therefore, inform learners of any limits their learning difficulty may impose on future progression.
