           Gain university credits
           and qualifications

        You can earn credits towards qualifications
        when you complete the required work and
        assessments. These credits are part of a
        national scheme, which means they are
        recognised by most universities and
        educational establishments. This is useful
        when you want to continue your studies
        elsewhere.
        Find out more about credits on page 75.
        There are a range of accredited pathways
        available for those hoping to progress on to
        an undergraduate degree. Please see inside
        cover.
        In a few cases, we also teach students who
        want to gain professional qualifications
        offered by external bodies. Find out more
        about this – and the range of awards and
        qualifications you can work towards – on
        page 75.

            This is a warm and lively class, suitable for
            both new and experienced writers.
            Emphasis is placed on exploration and
            experimentation, with the idea that each
            student learns about their own voice and
            exposes their own creative potential.
            Through sampling various written forms,
            from lists to letters, poetry to prose, fiction
            to memoir, students discover what feels
            natural and authentic, as well as extending
            what feels possible, to them as writers. The
            class will involve presentation, lively
            discussion and feedback
