Tutor: Liz Wellstead & Maisie Grogan
For the last 20 years Liz has been teaching art two days a week at Canterbury College. She has seen how the lack of opportunities can be such a barrier for FE students looking to move into the creative industries. Liz wants us to pioneer a way to support young people by providing apprenticeships and hands-on experience for young people so that they can follow their own dreams.
