Our resources do not follow prescriptive outcomes, instead we believe the role of the teacher is to introduce key skills, materials and ideas to the pupils in such a way that each pupil can then explore his or her own creativity. Each class and individuals within the class will naturally explore at his or her own level. Fundamental exercises can be experienced by all ages, and repeated by all ages, as part of their practice. There is no need for a “progression of activity” as such – children will naturally progress once they have repeated access to a material, process or concept. Studying art and design at school opens the door to a range of careers in the creative industries.

The purpose of the Professional Placement is to improve your employability skills which will, through the placement experience, allow you to evidence your professional skills, attitudes and behaviours at the point of entry to the postgraduate job market. Our students practice as artists, gain promotion within the field of education, pursue research or take a sideways step into another arts education related context. The structure of the course enables you to focus your research within the context of your own creative field and workplace.

This degree has partnerships with international galleries including Tate Modern, the Whitechapel Gallery and the Showroom Gallery. Students use sketchbooks to record, from first- hand experience, their personal responses to the Renaissance works of art, thus developing their critical appraisal skills and adding to their knowledge and understanding of the theory and practice of art. In 2018 a landmark research project commissioned by Arts Council England, and undertaken by the University of Nottingham, called Tracking Learning and Engagement in the Arts outlined the overwhelmingly positive benefits of arts and cultural education for young people. The research drew from the experience and voices of thousands of young people and their teachers in secondary and special schools.

A US study exploring how high-quality and integrated arts education programme adds value to school-wide reform. Evaluates and illustrates how 44 schools used creative approaches to learning, together with the impact on pupils’ achievement and personal development. Celc demonstrates how the creative arts can provide stimulating and rich opportunities for learners while meeting the requirements of The Literacy and Numeracy Framework.

This section contains a selection of works exploring the impact of arts and culture on education. The references may be useful for advocacy, to help with funding applications or to inform thinking about how artists, arts organisation and the Arts add value to work with schools and young people. The programme encourages teachers and learners to try new ideas, build confidence, collaborate, problem-solve and communicate. It places high value on reflective activity, social, emotional and intellectual engagement as well as developing creativity skills. The Art of Learning uses the arts and creative process to support improvements in the executive function of the brain in young people and creative confidence in their teachers.

International Students

We have pulled together some of these voices and findings from TALE and other research, as well as helpful resources on studying art. Anddefined pedagogies that have the biggest impact of pupils’ academic, social, artistic and emotional progress. The researchers from the University of Nottingham and Goldsmith College London identified 5 Creative Habits of Mind. OpportUNIty ensures that our students are given a first opportunity to fill many part-time temporary positions within the University. It will also allow you to become more involved in University life by delivering, leading and supporting many aspects of the learning experience, from administration to research and mentoring roles.
