Course: Footwear Pattern Making

Footwear Pattern Engineering Course is divided into several modules with various different lessons and tests in each module:

Module 1 -Introduction: Lessons provide information on how to use eLearning material - instructions and user guide. Introduction lesson provides an overview of the training course Footwear pattern Engineering.

Module 2: Background - Fashion, Foot Anatomy, Shoe Lasts: Lessons and tests cover shoe fashion, foot anatomy and measurement, shoe lasts and shoe lasts forms.

Module 3: Footwear Pattern Engineering: Learning material have been worked out together and closely related to each other. Ten designs have been chosen, which identify different market requirements, different fashion themes, different constructions, and different manufacturing processes.

The list of lessons and tests is as follows: 1: Decollete; 2. Woman's sandal; 3. Men's sandal; 4. Derby shoe; 5. Oxford shoe; 6. Slip-on shoe; 7. Man's casual shoe; 8. Sport shoe; 9. Ladies tubular shoe; 10. Real moccasins

Module 4: Preparation module: With lessons covering - Shoe components, Pattern Grading

The concept of e-Learning and its application in the leather and shoe industry (re)training is introduced in the survey "e-Learning in the Leather-based Industries" by Dr. Ferenc Schmél that was submitted to the UNIDO Leather and Leather Products Indutry Panel held in Shanghai, China in 2012. Blocks of the above chart represent the 21 modules of the complete course. Each of them is composed of 24-80 colorful and mostly highly animated slides, texts and flowcharts, terminology, pictures/illustrations, videos, references to outside resources. Each module offers a complete set of knowledge, explanation of methodology, instructions etc. covering the respective theoretical knowledge and related skills. In principle the learner needs no further sources for obtaining the necessary information (including options) and to develop her/his skills (e.g. in pattern drawing and cutting). A comprehensive test is made for each lesson for checking the efficiency of the learning effort.

Footwear pattern Engineering course and  e-Learning courses for the leather, footwear and other leather products industries have been developed by UNIDO and TechnOrg

Registration to the course is free. Steps to have an access to the course:

"SAFE Leather" must mean safe for operators and workers, as well as safe for consumers and communities. Company management must ensure that the workplace provides workers and anyone else attending the workplace with access to appropriate first aid equipment. Management must also ensure that the workers have access to an adequate number of persons who have been trained to administer first aid.

First Aid course/training should be mandatory for all employees.
