Glyndebourne 2017Successful applicants will have access to a wide range of valuable experiences and opportunities including attending Glyndebourne education workshops, access to the Glyndebourne archives and exhibiting work through an online gallery.

Stunning Glyndebourne offers a unique environment and inspiration for artists to explore their practice and produce innovative creative responses. Previous Art and Design PGCE students have commented on the artistic freedom of the brief, and how it allowed them to explore and discover their identity as artists. From observing rehearsals to strolling the elegant gardens, this placement provides an abundance of opportunity and artistic experience to benefit your teaching journey.
