Denim City also hosts the world’s one-and-only independent education facility dedicated to denim. It’s primary course is a 3-year ‘Denim Developer’ programme, training young talent in all aspects of the jean, from crop to shop (including introductions to yarn, fabric, pattern, production, laundry, commerce, innovation and sustainability). Many leading denim brands are involved in the programme, offering materials & machinery, assignments, guest lectures, site visits and internships.

Founded in collaboration with ROCvA, Jean School offers state funded and industry-endorsed courses within the Dutch education system. Since 2016 we also offer a 1-year, English-spoken course with a B-TEC accreditation.

Under the Denim Academy label, Denim City also offers short courses for industry professionals; both for retail and design, production or wholesale staff.
