Keith Brymer Jones becomes NSEAD patron

We are delighted to announce Keith Brymer Jones is now a patron of NSEAD

Keith is a passionate advocate for art, craft and design education – he believes that everyone should have the opportunity to make and create. An expert ceramicist and lead designer at Make International he is a fantastic role model for aspiring potters and makers everywhere. Keith is very keen to work with NSEAD to reach out to art, craft and design teachers, lecturers and educators, pupils and their families, across the UK and beyond, to help us champion and lobby for the importance of the subject.

We look forward to working with Keith, who says:

‘NSEAD is an amazing organisation. They support art teachers in their work all around the country. They give advice, and opportunities to learn different ways of teaching… NSEAD are important.

‘The creative arts generate a huge amount of money for this country. Don’t let anyone ever tell you that you can’t make a living out of being an artist or working in the arts. Because it is wrong, there are so many things that you can do.

Join me, join NSEAD to help champion and protect our subject.'

NSEAD continue to challenge the DFE on inequalities in initial teacher education recruitment

In October 2018, we wrote to Damien Hinds MP to challenge the DfE on issues within initial teacher education recruitment. We asked: 'Why is music treated more favourably than art and design?'
