Why study with us


The NAJ Education team are on hand to help you make progress with your jewellery journey, whether that be as an employer or an employee. You may be looking for something different to the Jewellery Education and Training (JET) programmes the Association delivers for the jewellery industry, so it's always a good idea to contact team who can provide you with information, and sign post you to providers that can help, even if the Association can't.

The Education team has put together a helpful mythbusting guide to make sure your understanding of Apprenticeships in the UK is right up to date, and you're informed as to where to go next.
