About Plymouth College of Art
As an independent, specialist art college we welcome people who want to be part of our free-thinking and dynamic community.
We recruit the best people to a variety of roles within a stimulating, friendly and diverse environment that nurtures talent and rewards success. Our staff come from across the county, not only for our outstanding reputation but because of the culture of innovation and forward thinking that is part of the College community.
Currently the College has a ratio of HE to FE students of 60:40, BA (Hons) and MA through to FE for A-level and BTEC courses. In addition, we enjoy partner status with the Open University, which accredits our undergraduate and postgraduate degrees with 57% of our staff dedicated to curriculum delivery and are focused on achieving HEi and TDAP status. We also have a growing international profile including partnerships in China.
In 2012 we successfully bid to Government to open a mainstream 4–16 school - on a radical new model that places creativity and arts practice at the very heart of the curriculum and of the wider pupil learning experience.
Plymouth is a vibrant city with a history of discovery and a present of breaking boundaries in rediscovering and reinventing itself. The College is on an exciting journey with a new £7 million building programme to maintain and grow the college’s position as a highly distinctive Art and Design College providing a strong continuum of learning – we welcome innovative people to join us.
