Discover Academy is committed to furthering the career opportunities of young people with few or no qualifications, ex-offenders and recovering substance misusers.
The creative arts of design and music are uniquely non-judgemental in their recognition of talent over qualifications and past life difficulties, and we are working to develop strong links with industry career pathways, so that our students will benefit not only from their time with us, but also continue to pursue their creative ambitions.
THE MAIN PREMISE OF OUR MISSION STATEMENT IS THAT APPLICANTS DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE ANY FORMAL QUALIFICATIONS. EX-OFFENDERS AND RECOVERING SUBSTANCE MISUSERS ARE WELCOME AND POSITIVELY ENCOURAGED TO APPLY. OUR COURSES ARE ACCESSIBLE ON ALL LEVELS - WE OFFER ACCESSIBLE FACILITIES AT OUR PREMISES, AND OUR APPLICATION PROCESS IS FULLY SUPPORTED.
