This exciting programme of visual study gives you the opportunity to explore a full range of approaches to art and design. This course provides students with the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to progress to degree-level study in art and design, or into employment. It provides an opportunity for those who have an interest in the visual arts to explore, develop and test their creativity within a qualification structure which is stimulating and demanding and provides a supportive transition from further to higher education.

As well as extending your skills in drawing, you will learn to use a wide range of equipment and many new materials and processes. You will work on a number of experimental and industry related project briefs that introduce you to the Apple Macs, printmaking, 3D, graphics, photography, fashion and textiles.

The Level 3 Applied General Diploma in Art and Design is made up of 1 unit which is externally assessed. The work produced will go into a professionally produced end-of-year exhibition. Throughout the course you will receive specialist advice and tutor support on portfolio presentation and preparation for university, apprenticeships and job interviews. On successful completion of the Diploma, students can progress on to the Extended Diploma in Art & Design.
