The field of Design is one is the top areas of employment in the UK …. and is growing! Art & Design experience is also very useful in many non Art related careers from hairdressing to surgeon and electrician to primary teacher.

Higher Grade Art and Design is accepted as part of the entrance requirements for all University courses. Indeed, one major Scottish University used to specify Higher Art as a requirement for entry to its Medical Faculty because surgeons need to have highly developed visual awareness and hand/eye co-ordination.
