From Learning to Earning™ at Nottingham Trent University
Perhaps the most stimulating and enjoyable aspect of the CSD Course Endorsement Programme (CEP) is being able to converse with the students on the accredited courses. This interaction is what the professional body for design is all about. Inspiring design students to enter their career in design with the highest possible regard for professional practice, encouraging them to continually develop their competences, pointing out some of the pitfalls and how to overcome some of the hurdles and above all relating to them how satisfying a career in design is.
