Our Philosophy

Our focus is on helping you become the very best designer you can be. If you’re looking for a creative career, you’ve come to the right place. With a little help from us, we’ll equip you with the skills to transform you into a qualified designer with excellent hands-on, industry-relevant skills.

We’re committed to developing your skills as an individual and we recognise the importance of finding work when you graduate. With industry practitioners as lecturers, strong industry connections and a dedicated focus on portfolio development, completing these courses will position you as a highly-qualified and sought after graduate.

Become a CATC Design School student and you’ll experience an interactive, energetic and creative learning environment. You’ll mix with industry professionals, supportive staff and like-minded design students.

When it’s time to leave the College, you’ll be an inspired, confident and committed individual, with a valuable set of skills and contacts.

When you study at CATC Design School, we go out of our way to provide you with the complete student experience. Whether it’s lecturers, career advice, portfolio development or access to jobs, you’ll benefit from a great support network.

You don’t need any specific experience to study at CATC. What we are looking for are creative individuals with a passion for design. Our career-oriented courses give you every opportunity for technical, creative and business advancement.
