The role of the Merchandiser or planner is to work alongside the buyer to plan and deliver a range or ranges, and make sure that they are brought in the right quantities, arrive at the right time and work to ensure that they are given the best opportunity to sell through.
The Fashion Buying and Merchandising-Merchandising Techniques course from London College of Fashion is an ideal follow on from our Introduction to Fashion Buying and Merchandising course and will give a really good understanding of Merchandising terms and tools and how you can use them on a day to day basis.
It will also help those who have started their career in Merchandising and want to understand best practice.
The projects you'll be asked to undertake involve mathematical formulae therefore it's essential you have an understanding of maths to GCSE level C or equivalent.
