Regional coverage

Cleveland College of Art & Design is the only specialist art and design college in the north east of England and one of only four in the country in the further education sector.

History and estates

The college has two campuses, one in Linthorpe, Middlesbrough and one in Church Square, Hartlepool.[1]

Middlesbrough School of Art, on Durham Street, and the nearby Government School of Arts in the Athenaeum on Church Street, West Hartlepool first opened in 1870 and 1874 respectively.

The college's current principal is Martin Raby.

Green Lane campus

Its main Middlesbrough-based Green Lane campus was first opened in 1960 by Robin Darwin, then-Principal of the Royal College of Art, and was later extended as Middlesbrough School of Art. It is based in the Linthorpe area of Middlesbrough.

Church Square campus

The college has operated continuously in its present Hartlepool spot since 1938, despite a 1966 fire. It is located off Church Street (A178) at the junction of the A689 (Stockton Street) and A178, and near the railway station.

Courses

Cleveland College of Art & Design is an institution of both further and higher education, and because of this it has courses aimed at 16-year-old school-leavers all the way through to degree level, as well as part-time evening classes.

FE courses

The college offers a range of BTEC Edexcel National Diplomas across the whole art and design spectrum, including Design Crafts, Graphic Design, Textiles, Photography, Fine Art, Fashion & Clothing, 3D design and Multimedia.

Cleveland College of Art & Design also offers a BTEC Edexcel Diploma in Foundation Studies in Art & Design, a course traditionally undertaken by A-level students prior to enrolling on an art and design course at university.

HE courses

At higher education level, the college also offers BA (Hons) and FdA degrees, covering such subjects as textiles, photography, theatre design and fashion. All the college's Higher Education courses are validated by Teesside University.
