School and college progression partnerships

Body text

We're committed to providing high quality progression programmes to schools and colleges.

We aim to provide learners with information, advice and guidance (IAG) about the creative and digital industries. We provide an insight into what it's like to study at a specialist creative university through a programme of subject focused workshops, masterclasses and holiday schools.  

Our links to industry means that we have an exciting programme of industry events and talks from influential creative professionals that our partner schools and colleges can access for free. These take place at our campus and online.

Our primary objective is to support the next generation to progress and succeed within the creative and digital industries.
