Portfolios can often be neglected right up until the last minute. This resource provides some creative ideas and valuable tips to ensuring the most is made of the work students have done on their courses.

This slide show doesn’t focus on a particular area within the portfolio such as A1 sheets or the sketchbook. It also doesn’t focus on a specific specialism and would work equally well for each. It does cover missed opportunities that have arisen when students have taken their completed portfolios to interview and said: “I wish I had also included…”

It would be a good idea for students to see this slide show at the start of their portfolio production time as a general overview, after which you can add your own specific details.
