We provide an education that prepares students for the world of work, whether as self-employed, or employed in related areas. As well as being fully qualified teachers, our tutors are professional artists and designers and have extensive links with industry. OFSTED cited, "'very effective links with the profession across the board and student success in national awards'". Our studios and workshops are equipped to industry standards. Kensington and Chelsea College is committed to maintaining specialist provision for the arts. We have dedicated Ceramic, Jewellery and Glass studios, and Mac suites, to name only a few. We are one of the last remaining colleges in London to provide such a wide variety of specialist provision.

Apprenticeships in Art and DesignAre you creative? Do you have good attention to detail? Careers in design encompass a huge range of skills and occupations from Graphic Designers working in Marketing teams to interior designers and even working with construction companies. Whilst the range of careers and sectors are diverse there are many similar skills required, Designers come up with concepts and work closely with teams to realise these creative ambitions. You may already work at a Creative Agency, and if so get in touch to see how studying (and working) on a Design Apprenticeship can help your career and if you're looking to develop a career in the sector get in touch with KCC Works and see how pre-apprenticeship training can help you!

While each industry requires specific skills, all designers work to come up with a concept that both serves a purpose and looks good. It's a challenging and creative role. At Level 2 you could well be a design assistant, working closely with designers on projects and campaigns, with work likely to include preparing documents, presentations, design briefs along with utilising software to support the design process.
