Will I receive support throughout my course?

At Big Creative Education, we pride ourselves on offering support to all of our learners throughout their programme.

We have a number of learners who have a range of support needs from specific learning difficulties, or autistic spectrum disorders to mental health conditions, amongst others. If you currently have a valid Education and Health Care Plan or a Learning Difficulty Assessment (LDA), you will be entitled to government funded support from your local authority to ensure we help you achieve the best from your learning.

If you wish to discuss any aspect of learning support, please do not hesitate to contact Lauren (Entry Level to Level 2) or Shayne (Level 3) on 020 8498 3300.

How will I be taught and assessed?

All of our courses are vocational which means they are designed to compliment learners with a visual and kinaesthetic learning style.

As a result, you will be assessed via a range of both practical and written assignments.

What happens after I submit an Application?

Once you have submitted your application online, you will be contacted via post and email with an interview appointment. Our interview evenings happen on a monthly basis so you will never wait more than 30 days for an appointment.

Your interview is an opportunity for you to showcase and discuss your creative skill set with our industry professional tutors. We actively encourage applicants to attend their interviews with either a portfolio of work (if you have it) or an audition piece (if you’re applying for Music Performance or Performing Arts).

At the end of your interview you will receive a conditional offer for September subject to achieving the entry criteria. This will also be confirmed in writing so you have something to keep as a reminder.
