Creative Adult Courses can Help you…
…Build Transferrable Skills
Did you know that, for Apple, Steve Jobs often hired artists interested in technology instead of computing wizzes? Top Talent management agency, The Curve Group, agrees, saying that creative students “…have developed more quickly in their roles from the start. They have discipline, confidence and can accept criticism.”
Whether you want to study our adult courses from Entry Level Creative Craft right up to Level 4 Creative Enterprise, the skills you’ll develop on our creative adult courses will equip you with a with the right outlook for opportunity.
Our Adult courses are a brilliant chance for you to jump in to something that truly excites you. They’re an opportunity for you to do something that you enjoy, and get hands-on. Let’s take a few examples. On our Level 2 Body Art Design, Level 2 Nail Technology, Level 2 Skin Tanning, Level 2 Gel Polish Techniques , or a Level 1 in Fashion, there’s a common theme. It’s you, learning something you love by doing something you love. There isn’t anything much more fulfilling than that.
…Become the Person you Want to Be
To achieve your ambition, whatever it may be, studying a creative course can help you get to you goal. But how might a creative course have value that can be used no matter what you’re after? It’s because on a creative course, you’ll need to communicate your thoughts, opinions, and feelings in a way that influences yours and other’s decisions, you’ll develop the confidence the present your work and be open to criticism from others and yourself. Tie these things together and you’ve got an extremely valuable skill called ‘emotional intelligence’.
It doesn’t matter if you studied our Level 2 Computing, Level 2 Game Design, or something different like our Level 1 Graphic Design, Level 2 Photography, or Level 2 in Media – you’ll gain emotional intelligence no matter which creative course you choose. This type of intelligence is essential to navigating and getting the most out of life, and can set you leagues ahead of plenty of people.
We want to say this again. An adult course is for you. Not for anyone else – it’s something that’s uniquely yours – your learning experience doing something you enjoy, and your opportunities that lie ahead.
