Gemma Warden

BA Furniture and Product Design at Nottingham Trent University.

Throughout the years I have considered many careers, as one does when they are a child but the one consistent element of the many jobs I considered was design. The need to improve and create from pre-existing products always underpinned any other interest I had surrounding the job I’d chosen.

After a few years I managed to narrow my focus to a more creative side of design. In the end I chose the course at Nottingham Trent because of its potential for creative freedom. It is my desire now to run my own design company, designing and creating my own bespoke furniture for high end markets.

How does the school measure the impact of the careers programme on pupils?

The impact of this programme is measured continuously throughout the year. Tools we use for measuring impact include:
