Industry and Education get closer

We’ve chosen to focus on five core areas that we feel are fundamental to the future of design education in the UK.


These are:

1. Credibility of subject
2. Relevance of content
3. Association with design industry
4. Funding
5. Adoption of new teaching tools


The good news is we’ve forged ahead addressing credibility issues and relevance of content by re-writing the syllabus in Design & Technology and Art & Design, which has been approved by the government. Important issues however still remain, so therefore it’s vital we continue to do what we can, where we can to achieve our goals.



The Skills Academy for Design

We’re currently supporting an initiative by the Design Council that brings Industry and Education closer together – supporting teachers and schools in providing relevant best practice, training, advice and access to the design industry.


The kick off for this initiative is July 18th at 5:30pm at the Design Council. It’s important as many industry representatives attend as possible, so please get involved and have your say. Thank you.
