Saturday Art and Design Club 19/20

Pathways will be running a new Saturday Art and Design Club for students to help develop their artistic skills and techniques and build upon their portfolio which will help with FE and HE applications.

This exciting opportunity is open to NCOP eligible students and is completely free of charge. Students will be expected to attend each Saturday of the 10 week programme from 10am-1pm. As part of the schedule students will also have the chance to take part in an inspirational trip to London, all expenses covered. There are a limited amount of spaces available (30).

Cohort 1: 12th October – 14th December, Location: Loughborough University

Cohort 2: 11th January – 14th March, Location: De Montfort University

Cohort 3: 25th April – 27th June, Location: ONLINE

Each student who wishes to take part in the activities will need to complete a Data Consent Form for East Midlands Widening Participation Research and Evaluation Partnership (EMWPREP). This is a monitoring database that allows the universities to report NCOP activity back to the Office for Students (OfS). Pathways will provide you with copies of this form and provide guidance if required. Further information about EMWPREP can be found here (
