In his role at Plymouth College of Art, Nick engages with local, national and international businesses to find opportunities for students, adding to their employability. He also works with our academics, finding interesting live briefs to contribute to students’ portfolios, and facilitating the projects between students and employers, with a focus on paid opportunities, because we believe students shouldn’t be working for free. He also helps students with entrepreneurship, self employment, setting up a company and freelancing.
