To support the MCSJ Silver Metal Clay Home Study Diploma, we’ve teamed up with a group of talented artists and teachers, all of whom have experienced the MCSJ Diploma first hand. Some of them are full Diploma holders, some are on the way to becoming Diploma holders. Each of them has been through a rigorous application process to become authorised as a Diploma Support Centre. They are authorised to offer a number of services which support the Silver Metal Clay Home Study Diploma course. These Support Centres are dotted around the UK and also in several countries in Europe.
Support Centres staffed by full Diploma holders offer a range of services from kiln firing and open workshops to running classes supporting the skills and techniques required by Home Study students.
Our Support Centres staffed by people who are still working towards the full Diploma are authorised to offer kiln firing services and open workshop days for students to use their tools and facilities. As soon as they pass the full Diploma, they will be authorised to offer the complete range of services.
One of the things we’ve asked all our Support Centres to sign up to is a teaching Code of Practice. This Code aims to lay out some fundamental aspects of running a good class. It is a Code of Practice designed to improve teaching standards. We are not interested in prescribing what our Support Centres teach; instead we aim to provide an umbrella set of goals that all teachers would want to aspire to.
This provides students with peace of mind when choosing a teacher for their metal clay journey. When you choose a teacher who is part of our team, you can be sure they will provide a safe and supportive teaching environment and offer you value for money. If you have any problems, we have a Code of Practice Assurance Process.
