Do you need to have a better general understanding of how shoes are made in a factory? Or do you just want to be informed about the very latest manufacturing techniques? Then come and join one of our new short courses in China!

Target group

The one or two-week Footwear Production Intensives are ideal for anyone who needs to have a good understanding of how shoes are produced in a factory, but does not have a lot of experience in footwear production yet or has never even visited a factory. This includes junior level designers, developers, product managers, quality control managers, merchandisers, buyers and even those involved in marketing/PR or customer service who need to be able to answer product-related questions from the audience.

Course aim

Since there is relatively little footwear production left in Northern Europe, SLEM’s Professional Footwear Innovation students go to China’s Guangdong province for several weeks to experience all aspects of modern shoe production. Here they have a combination of theory classes and many company visits that cover all aspects of modern footwear manufacturing, including tooling and materials.
