“Ultimately our goal as an education-provider is to equip all learners with the skills needed to confidently enter the workplace. According to government data, the creative industry is now one of the fastest growing in the UK and continues to outperform the wider economy.

"We believe there is no better time to embrace creativity and innovation when preparing our young people for their next steps.
