S3 Edinburgh College Design Partnership

Our Edinburgh College Schools’ Ambassadors

S3 students have been taking part in an exciting pilot project with the Graphic Design department of Edinburgh College’s Faculty of Creative Industries. Two Schools’ Ambassadors from Edinburgh College are delivering a series of workshops across seven Edinburgh schools with students signing up to take part in a design brief with a deadline as an independent project completed in their own time, supported by the College and the Ambassadors. This exciting project will also gain the students a Module called Preparation for Study within the Creative Industries. From this, 20 students from the seven schools will be selected to take part in a week long workshop with the College and their Design partners. This is a really exciting partnership project and real world experience for our students.
