HOW OUR CLASSES WORK:

All of our classes have a student:tutor ratio of 6:1. Most are mixed level and some are mixed discipline, which means you will likely be in a group of people all doing different projects.

Tuition is given on an individual basis at each student’s bench to ensure a fully COVID-secure working and learning environment.

When you are approaching the end of your Level 2 course, you will be given the option to keep your class space in order to take further courses.
