Schools' Hub

No creative journey is the same but we know that inspiring your students, whatever their ambition, is at the heart of what we do in creative education.

Since 1883 creative teaching and learning has been at the heart of AUB. We're dedicated to supporting schools and helping students make decisions about their future.

Our passionate schools' team runs workshops and delivers talks throughout the year, covering topics from the diversity of the creative industries to what it's like to study a creative subject.

Whether you have students that know who they want to be or students that are still working it out, we have a route to the creative industries to suit everyone's personal journey.

If you'd like to hear more about what we can offer you and your students, sign up to our monthly newsletter below. If you'd like a taster of what we send out, take a look at our previous editions in the downloads section.

How can we help?

We offer a variety of resources to use in the classroom – take a look through our workshop options, portfolio guidelines and our newly launched 'I Can't Draw' project.

As part of our Access and Participation programme, we aim to ensure that those with the potential to benefit from higher education have the opportunity to do so, whatever their background. To do this, we've developed an extensive outreach programme which can be tailored to meet the needs of the learners in each school and college.

"Activities like this gives the students a sense of belonging within their group setting. Our partnership with AUB is invaluable; our students have an ever-increasing awareness of the University and what it affords them. We shall most certainly continue to work alongside AUB and take up all opportunities on offer, as well as visiting the forthcoming Summer Shows! Thanks again for all your support!"
