Fashion, Art & Design

The Uk's creative industries are vital to the country's future economic growth as well as to future job creation.  These sectors continue to outgrow the rest of the economy and generated £87.4bn for the country in 2015.  There are an estimated 2.9m jobs in the creative economy, which also include those in non-creative organisations such as in design or marketing teams within manufacturing.

We deliver courses from Level 1 to Foundation degree level across a wide range of area within the Fashion, Art & Design specialisms. Our goal is to provide a strong foundation from which you can develop your creative career.

Whether you want to be the next fashion designer, work in the art and design sector or become self employed we have the course to develop your skills and knowledge. You will find yourself in an intensely creative and demanding environment, in which you will be challenged to become an innovative, creative and outstanding professional.

Our experienced lecturers deliver courses in fashion, art and design using industry specific standards and specialist equipment. Our courses not only develop your creative skills, but also equip you with the knowledge and the latest techniques that employers look for in their new recruits.  There are opportunities to work with employers and industry through live project briefs and work experience.  Students also participate in live competitions to enhance their portfolio and life skills. 

Over 80% of students from Level 3 programmes progress into Higher Education.  Our students have graduated to careers in fashion, visual arts, design, illustration, graphics, 3D design, textiles, 3D design crafts, retail, styling and promotion, business, visual communication, business and buying and merchandising.
