The Creative Design & Technology department delivers a range of contemporary design practices across both 2 and 3 dimensions and includes traditional construction and design as well as ensuring that modern digital practice is delivered in a range of industry standard software.
The vocational nature of the course means that students are prepared well for their future, whether they continue their education on one of the specialist post 16 courses at the BRIT or look to move in to industry.
Every project brief that students work with has a vocational context, with at least 2 having a live outcome, not only is this a great opportunity to learn but it helps to develop confidence, organisation and the mental strength required to operate in the busy creative sector of the 21st Century.
Students will need to be as hard working and enthusiastic about Design as the staff are and should look to embrace the diversity of opportunities on offer.
A 2008 publication from the Department for Culture, Media and Sport reported that the creative industries employ 2 million people in Britain and contribute £60 billion to the economy each year, 7.3 percent of UK GDP.
