4 1 INTRODUCTION TO CONTINUING EDUCATION AT NCAD The National College of Art and Design offers the most extensive range of part-time art and design courses in Ireland. Over 800 students participate in the continuing education programme annually. Courses are provided at different levels to facilitate students who want to participate in ﬂexible learning opportunities, gain qualiﬁcations and progress within third level. Continuing education also provides courses for individuals interested in returning to education, or those wanting to enhance their existing skill and knowledge in art and design through participation in short courses. CEAD students include: individuals who have a commitment to making ﬁne art and design work and want to continue in practice; individuals interested in expanding their art skills and knowledge of art processes; experienced visual arts practitioners who want to return and renew their arts practice; mature students who are interested in progressing within the higher education system and want to pursue a career in visual art and design. Students can access the library for reading purposes and students registered for accredited options such as Certificate or Diploma courses will have borrowing rights in the library. CEAD students can submit work for the annual exhibition, which takes place in July on the college campus. The exhibition is organised by the evening students union and selection of students work for exhibition is by an independent panel. Students whose work is presented and selected for Exhibition will be required to pay an additional contribution towards display of work.
