    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!

    My Apprenticeship is so varied. One day I'm fixing things, putting flanges and pipes together, and the next day I'm doing something completely different such as changing drives.
