The Cohort is Modern Painters, New Decorator’s career development programme for students and recent grads. The Cohort is an intentional part-time year out for individuals who want to receive teaching, mentoring, and on-the-job training in order to develop their skills working in the visual arts. They've partnered with Creative Leicestershire's own professional development programme, WebinArt, to help make this opportunity happen. The programme starts in October, and ends 12 months later.
