    When I completed my GCSEs I knew that I wanted to go to College to learn a trade. During my course I had the opportunity to compete at the UK WorldSkills finals in England. Now I'm one of the UK's top tilers!

    The variety of subjects and the freedom to explore various themes and projects have helped me find my love for contemporary 3D work and sculpture. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is serious about studying Art & Design. School can’t give you the hands-on experience this course does. It has prepared me for University and helped me achieve my dream of going to Glasgow School of Art!
