On successful completion of this, you can progress to the Extended Diploma in year 2 which will give you a UAL qualification equivalent to three A levels, which is well recognised by employers and universities.

All aged 16-18 students have the benefit of following the ‘Futures’ programme which is an innovative approach to curriculum design that ensures our students not only graduate with a high quality vocational qualification but also develop the key transferable skills that employers and higher education institutions demand. Skills such as communication, teamwork, leadership, decision-making and enterprise skills are integrated and promoted. In addition, Futures students benefit from work experience, core tutorials, enrichment and skills development and/or qualifications in English and maths.

During this exciting, practical and fast-paced course you will undertake a number of projects which develop your skills and techniques, you will apply this at the end of each year for your Final Major Project, which will determine your course grade.
