Student Profile

Olivia Broadbent Smith

"I chose the University of Brighton as I knew they have an excellent (Secondary) Art and Design PGCE and a high standard of subject knowledge to help develop my own practice.

"A highlight of this course for me was the level of support from everyone, in particular from my cohort who were really encouraging. Working so closely with peers allowed us to support one another and provided a really strong network to share experiences and ideas.

"The workshops we participated in, the visits to galleries and museums and school visits were invaluable to me. All these elements of the course were helpful in developing my creative practice, they also gave me confidence in suggesting new techniques and approaches whilst in school-based training. The resources developed during these sessions have since become a great source of reference for my NQT year."
