Manchester Creative Studio

Manchester Creative Studio (MCS) is an employer led studio school preparing young people for a career in the creative industries. Combining project based learning, work placements and paid employment, MCS provides an innovative ‘hands on’ approach to education, where students learn from industry experts.

Based in Manchester city centre, MCS allows talented young people to learn in small groups and follow a personalised curriculum that meets their interests and needs. Alongside studying the core academic subjects of English, Maths and Science, students also have the option to study a language, humanities and a range of industry specific qualifications informed by employers in the creative sector.

Students graduating from MCS not only have the qualifications they need to progress onto higher education or into the industry, they have also developed a range of technical knowledge, entrepreneurial attributes and employability skills, vital to be successful in their working life.

Alongside this they will have spent a significant amount of time in the workplace, giving them a strong network of employers and experience of practically applying their learning in a commercial setting.
