Christopher “Franklin was a real turning point for me, i was finally able to direct my own learning. I suffer with dyslexia but learnt to adapt my thinking and know my limits. Through this i have been able to achieve the goals i have set myself. Franklin was a great environment where i was able to not only be myself but interact with other like minded creatives”.
Brendan "Franklin College was a great step towards reaching my long term aspirations within the creative industry. I still use the skills I learnt during my time at Franklin in my practice today. I have since worked with Tate Britain and the Courtauld institute of art and design, I hold a post as an associate lecturer at central Saint Martins and I continue to practice photography and art in my spare time as my wider vocation, all this would have not been likely without the boost from Franklin at an early age”
