About

This website is a resource for students, parents and carers, and teachers and advisors across London to find out more about creative pathways in higher education and careers. We network with local cultural and HEI partners to provide up-to-date information about courses, qualifications and employment and to point you in the direction of fantastic opportunities and resources for developing your skills and learning more about the creative sector.

Background

AccessHE is the access to higher education network for London. We co-ordinate collaborative projects across London aiming at encouraging more young people from under-represented groups into higher education (HE). We are the largest regional network in England engaging with over 300 HE institutions (HEIs), school and colleges working in London to widen access to HE. Set up in collaboration with some of our member HEIs, AccessHE Creative aims to support the progression of under-represented young people in London into the creative arts and design in higher education.

With the many challenges facing young people looking to follow a creative pathway, AccessHE’s Arts and Design forum identified the opportunity for widening participation teams to work collaboratively with local cultural partners to help young people and those supporting them to:

  • develop their skills, knowledge base and cultural capital
  • learn about the range of creative qualifications on offer, and employment opportunities withing the creative industries
  • have the confidence to choose a creative pathway
  • submit strong applications to creative higher education courses
