Level 1 in Art & Design
Over a one year course students will develop a range of practical skills and techniques including drawing, painting, mixed media and print. Many students who enjoy and successfully complete this course, progress onto the L2 in Art and Design or Graphics.
As part of the course you will also study English and maths and develop employability skills to help you to reach your full potential in education and prepare you to work independently, confidently and effectively in life.
You will need 1 GCSE pass at grade D and 2 GCSE passes at grade E in a range of subjects including maths and/or English Language. If you do not have an art qualification you will be expected to complete a short project to showcase your artistic ability.
Assessment takes place throughout the year which will lead to a final grade.
When you have successfully completed the course you could stay at college and progress to a Level 2 course, apprenticeship, employment or training.
