This January, we recently announced the Coach (Re)Loved Craftsperson Apprenticeship Program, a new one-year leather craftsmanship skills and training program designed as part of the house’s commitment to helping create a better-made future through better-made things.
 
Created to support Coach (Re)Loved, the house’s circular ecosystem of unique programs in repair, refurbishment, upcycling, recycling and trade-in, the Coach (Re)Loved Craftsperson Apprenticeship Program will teach apprentices the necessary skills to transform pre-loved Coach bags into newly reimagined and restored bags for resale. Under the supervision of master craftspeople and experts at the house’s one-of-a-kind Coach (Re)Loved and Repair Workshop in New Jersey, apprentices will learn foundational craftsmanship skills as well as develop a deep understanding of the lifecycle of Coach bags and the transformative impacts of circular models in fashion. The program builds on Coach’s existing apprenticeship program, which has trained over 400 in-store craftspeople to date in artisanal leathercrafting skills.  

Recently launched, the Coach (Re)Loved Craftsperson Apprenticeship Program is currently accepting applications for its inaugural program year starting in June 2022.
