what will i learn?
The Level 1 and 2 Art and Design Diploma provides the perfect steppingstone to further study by engaging students in a wide range of media. It enables you to build your skills, knowledge and portfolio in preparation for progression to the Level 2 Progression in Art and Design or Level 3 Extended Diploma in Art and Design or alternatively a range of other qualifications offered at the College. The course is taught through practical projects and assignments. The projects cover a range of art skills such as drawing, painting, printmaking and crafts such as textiles. You will produce individual outcomes through guided research, ideas, development, media experimentation and evaluation. During the course, we also make research visits to art galleries and exhibitions.
where will it take me?
The Level 1 Diploma gives you the ideal foundation of skills to progress onto the Level 2 Progression in Art and Design or a range of other programmes within the College. Many of our alumni have progressed into careers such as print and textile design, animation, designer-makers, and design crafts.
Employment within the creative industries is as varied as it is challenging. Students from this course usually undertake the Level 3 Extended Diploma and then specialist degree level education before entering employment.
Each unit has interim assessment points and a final assessment, which is pass/fail. Your final unit in each year is graded pass, merit, distinction and this will be your yearly grade if all units are successfully completed. There are no exams on the main award; it is all assessed on practical work.
The Level 1 and 2 Diploma give you the ideal foundation of skills to then progress onto the Level 2 Progression in Art and Design or the Level 3 Extended Diploma in Art and Design or a range of other programmes within the College.
