The Arts & Design Network – bringing together information and advice to support young people applying to creative courses


This week AccessHE has been talking with a number of teachers and our higher education outreach partners to gather feedback and help to inform our planned online resource.

We are bringing together information for Teachers & Advisers, Parents & Carers and Young People.  Parents & carers will be able to access information on the contribution of the creative industries to our economy and the wide range of careers in the sector, alongside advice around student finance. Young people will find links to opportunities to develop their skills outside the classroom, materials for preparing portfolios or for auditions and what to expect at an interview. For teachers we will be sharing resources around making a case for the arts, providing links to cultural organisations who offer programmes for schools and colleges and highlighting CPD opportunities.

If you are a teacher or careers adviser and would like to be kept up to date on the work of the network, or have any suggestions as to what you would like included within the online resource, please email tracey.phillipson@londonhigher.ac.uk with the subject header  ‘Arts & Design network’.
