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.
