The Northern School of Art has been established for over 150 years. We are the only specialist provider of art and design programmes in the North East. We offer a distinct teaching and learning experience for students wishing to pursue an exciting career in the booming creative industries. Our further education (FE) provision for 16+ year olds is delivered from our Middlesbrough Campus and our higher education (HE) for 18+ year olds is housed within the University-level campus in Hartlepool. Additionally, the school runs a successful “Saturday Club” at its Middlesbrough campus for people ages 6 to 16 years.
The Northern School Of Art for Schools and Colleges
As a teacher you may want help and support in gaining new skills/techniques or even developing existing ones. We can contribute to your students’ portfolio development by offering something specific to the curriculum. Additionally, we can offer progression activities either on campus or in your own organisation. We can usually fit around your working day and lesson times and most sessions can be fully customised to meet your students’ needs.
