Vocational Training


For those who are not in a position to commit to year-long diploma but are looking for something more than a short course which will result in a formal qualification, we offer Nation Open College Network (NOCN) courses.

We are an approved NOCN Training Centre and provide vocational qualifications in Developing Skills for Employment.  

Course structure and content

We teach the following NOCN courses:

Both of these courses (which are externally verified) are designed around the skills, techniques and tasks of making mosaics and operating in a working art studio. Students work to an individual learning plan and create a portfolio, with guidance and support from our tutors. 

Most students undertake the practical side of their courses in our studio. The research, design, recording, and evaluation can be undertaken from home, our studio, or elsewhere (i.e. library).

Those who achieve our NOCN qualifications must be at least 14 years old.


Courses take place on Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 1000 – 1500 and generally last for 14 weeks.


The current fee is £490 per term /per person (attending one day per week).
