Inscape believes in offering value driven products to ensure the diverse growth of the creative sector and industry at large.

We have an established institutional culture that is unique to Inscape and its students. Our culture is built on a value system that encourages quality, authenticity and relationships. We strive for this to be reflective in all areas of our institution.

As an organisation, we promote inclusivity and access to higher learning. For every twenty students who enrol with us, we are able to offer partial or full scholarships to assist deserving candidates who otherwise would not have the opportunity to embark on their chosen careers.

Providing an enabling learning environment: Our campus facilities are modern, design sensitive, secure premises that are centrally located and easily accessible. The provision of all required equipment, technology, study material and access to additional information ensures quality learning from day one.

Inscape students are provided with predetermined Academic information to guide and inform their learning every step of the way. Students are therefore able to manage their time effectively. These documents include:

  • Syllabus documents (including content, programme delivery, assessment criteria and outcomes for each subject),
  • Course Outlines (document which outlines what each study session will entail on a weekly basis for the entire academic year. This includes assignments, deadlines and lecture content),
  • Information packs (details policies and procedures relevant to our students),
  • Interactive courseware with assignment briefs,
  • Timetable (your classes run according to a predetermined timetable that is updated every term).

All courseware is developed for the Inscape programmes specifically and our curriculum is reviewed and maintained annually to ensure relevant and unique content. We have high throughput and employment rates which attest to the quality of our courses and institutional approach.

Developing a positive learning experience:

Our approach to learning is embedded in our vision and mission: We strive to facilitate holistic learning to develop each individual to achieve their full potential in society. A Trans and multi-disciplinary attitude towards design, ensures that our graduates have an awareness of a variety of disciplines in the sector. They are able to easily integrate the knowledge and skills learnt across industries. Our industry relevant courses as well as industry based lecturers ensure that learning is up to date with the latest trends and technologies available.

We adopt a unique student centered teaching and learning approach aimed at lifelong learning. Our lecturer student ratio is low to ensure individual attention beyond the immediate academic needs of our students. We understand the dynamics of a small class culture and maximize the output of the student within this environment. Students are, however, expected to take responsibility for their own learning and strive to ultimately become independent learners.

We instil a teaching approach that is grounded in the principles of Work-Integrated Learning (WIL). Graduates who leave us are confident to enter the business world. We adopt a business approach in our curriculum and classrooms to prepare graduates for both the expected opportunities and challenges in the working world.

Continued learning:
Access to further learning is high on our priority list and we are proud that more than two thirds of our students who enter into our Higher Certificate programmes go on to be accepted into qualifications at either Inscape or other accredited and registered higher education institutions.

Our teaching practices: We practice a project-based practical application of knowledge and skills in our approach to creative learning. Our curriculum is project based and developed using Outcomes Based Education typologies. Practical concepts are explained and demonstrated within the courseware and applied to realistic project briefs, exposing students to independent critical thinking and creative problem solving. Industry engagements are encouraged and integrated into programme outcomes.

Experimentation, group discussion and practical application of knowledge and skills is facilitated. Initial free experimentation is followed by more formal learning of knowledge and skills.

Our Assessment Tools: We apply continuous project-based assessment, against defined outcomes, resulting in marks per assignment. Our students engage in peer assessment and self-assessment activities as a result of various types of critiques.

We facilitate rigorous Internal & External moderation procedures as part of our quality enhancement strategy. There are resubmission policies in place to assist students where necessary for extended opportunities to improve on their learning.

Academic Assistance: An open door policy enables students to approach their lecturers for anything they may need related to their studies. Student performance appraisals are conducted at predetermined times and concerns raised by lecturers are addressed immediately by the Campus Academic Manager. Early intervention strategies are implemented to aid students in progressing through the system successfully.
