A Jewel of The South - Scholarships Open in October

Courtney enrolled in our Diploma programme with the goal of learning the skills to run her own business.
What is a Gnomologist?
This year in April the TLC Educational Trust hosted a Creativity Challenge. The theme of the conference was 'Crossing Boundaries'. It attracted a wealth of national and international speakers - the movers and shakers of creativity. Each speaker generously shared their own unique insights and perspectives.
We recorded these talks so that we could share them with our students, friends, stakeholders and anyone else interested in the subject of creativity.
Henry Sunderland's talk is the first of our recorded talks to be released. He describes himself as a 'gnomologist' and, as you will see, he certainly has a lot of fun while making a serious point!
