Col­lege’s creative ex­pan­sion

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Kent Business Update -

K Col­lege is ex­pand­ing its range of creative in­dus­try cour­ses at Hen­wood, its spe­cial­ist art and fash­ion cam­pus in Ash­ford.

The cam­pus will now be of­fer­ing fur­ther ed­u­ca­tion cour­ses in mu­sic tech­nol­ogy and graphic de­sign.

The mix­ing desk be­ing in­stalled is the same make that Dizee Ras­cal uses at EMI’s record­ing stu­dios.

Stu­dents study­ing at the Creative In­dus­tries Train­ing Hub will all be given the op­por­tu­nity to run creative busi­nesses, to give them es­sen­tial ex­pe­ri­ence and skills in work­ing on pro­fes­sional con­tracts.

The hub will work closely with K Col­lege’s pho­tog­ra­phy stu­dents based at the Jem­mett Road cam­pus in South Ash­ford.

Jez Gid­dings, head of fac­ulty for creative in­dus­tries said: “We are work­ing closely with Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil and lo­cal busi­nesses and creative venues to sup­port the coun­cil’s arts man­i­festo.

“We cur­rently have stu­dents un­der­tak­ing a range of live vo­ca­tional projects within Ash­ford, such as mu­sic tech stu­dents in­tern­ing and run­ning the live set-up for per­for­mances at St Mary’s Church.

“This is about mak­ing sure stu­dents are fully trained, ready for work and able to net­work and func­tion in the creative in­dus­tries be­fore they leave ed­u­ca­tion.”
