About Portfolio School

Portfolio school system of education and training is a shift away from the traditional system of education which prepares students to prove what they know best in textbooks. Portfolio Schools offer skills and performance competence-based education and training. This means that you are prepared to meet the employment requirements of industry. Unlike academic institutions, Portfolio School students graduate with creative portfolios. Qualifications per se don't matter to employers in the creative industries. The fact is, employers in the creative industries can only determine the creativity and employability of job applicants by assessing their creative portfolios and not by reading what is stated on a piece of paper. Portfolios Schools are industry led and managed. No textbooks, No "chew and pour", No tests and nobody fails.
