Courses at Ayrshire College
Supported Learning students get creative
Supported Learning students have been working with the Marketing team at Ayrshire College, to design their own learning space in the College’s Kilmarnock Campus.
The students wanted to stamp their own identity on their department, so that other students, and visitors to the College, would instantly recognise they were in the Supported Learning area.
The design concept stemmed from what being at college means for the students involved in the project. This included ‘enterprise’, ‘independence’ and ‘friendship’.
Lynn Robertson, Graphic Designer in the Marketing team at the College worked with the students, harnessing their creative talents, to design signage that the students felt was a good representation of their learning experience at College.
Lynn said “"It was a pleasure to be involved in this project. The students had some really creative and original ideas for the wall art and a clear idea of the themes they wished to develop.
They worked well together to come up with a successful final solution and should be really proud of the finished piece - they have managed to reflect what they feel Supported Learning is all about and created a lasting legacy."
Shona Howat, Essential Skills Curriculum Manager said “the students have done a fantastic job and I think it really represents who we are. I particularly like the words that the students chose to reflect what this department means to them.
Now this corridor belongs to students past and present as they can leave the new signage as their legacy for future students to see.”
