Work Experience

Art and Design courses open up careers in fast-paced industries that are constantly searching for new talent, innovations and concepts to help create the next big design. As an Art and Design student you will be prepared for work after study by learning hands-on techniques, being commissioned to deliver projects and live briefs and devising innovative final major projects. These will develop vital business skills to help you reach your successful career direction. A great example of this is William, a 3D Design student who designed a GPS tracker for ships. Fifteen trackers have now gone into production and will be installed into ships, using the installation guide also created by William!

You may also have the opportunity to complete valuable work experience placements and live briefs. Previous opportunities have included:

  • Designing window displays for Harrods
  • Organising and attending community events and markets to sell your work through the Creative Enterprise pop-up shop
  • Designing window displays for local shops
  • Exhibiting your work to the public at the David Gentleman Gallery to promote yourself as an artist

Key Employability Skills

  • Portfolio-building
  • Confidence in marketing yourself
  • Good communication skills
  • Creative flair
  • Problem-solving
