Designer Hafeez Dawood reflects on the condition of British modern art and design education, neoliberal ideologies and the paradigm created from outcome-driven institutions. Drawing from his own experience entering art school, he emphasises the qualitative nature of the arts pedagogy highlighting that good practice of teaching must guide a student not only in the practice of their discipline but must also be cautious of their personal development.
