Description

Plymouth College of Art, as part of the collaborative Next Steps South West network, are hosting a free CPD opportunity, open to all teachers, careers advisers and influencers who work with students looking to apply to a Further Education and/or Higher Education institution for a creative course.

The Stand Out Conference will equip you with invaluable information that will help you to prepare your students with their portfolios and interview skills. There will be key notes from industry professionals to give you a unique insight into life within the creative industry, an exclusive Q&A session with renowned academics, and immersive opportunities to take part in interactive workshops across Art, Design and Media.

For most art and design courses, there is an expectation to display a portfolio containing examples of work. This one day conference will successfully explore different styles and techniques, giving you practical knowledge of new and innovative approaches that you can take back to school and feedback to your pupils.

The conference is a one-day event held at Plymouth College of Art (Plymouth, PL4 8AT) from 09.00 to 15.45, with lunch and refreshments provided. Experts from PCA and NSSW will be on-hand throughout the day.
