News: Positive Future: Trinity Laban Students

Friday 24 July 2009

Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance is proud to announce that 100% of its 2007-08 graduate cohort is in employment or further study*. Trinity Laban is one of only four Higher Education providers who have achieved this.

Anthony Bowne and Derek Aviss, Joint Principals of Trinity Laban said: “We are very proud of this fantastic achievement. At Trinity Laban we pride ourselves on providing our students with the best artistic training and with the skills they need to succeed in the professional world. These statistics show that this strategy is working. They also fly in face of anyone who would question the employability of arts graduates!”

Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance comprises contemporary dance centre Laban and Trinity College of Music – both leaders in their respective fields. A creative and cosmopolitan community of performers, composers, choreographers, teachers and researchers, Trinity Laban is known for its excellent training, vibrant programme of performances and festivals, and education, community and social-inclusion work.
