Level 2 in Art and Design
Over a one year course you will develop a range of practical skills and techniques including drawing, painting, mixed media, print and 3D. Many students who enjoy and successfully complete this course progress onto the L3 in Art and Design or Graphics.
As part of the course you will also study English and maths and will develop employability skills to help you reach your full potential in education and prepare you to work confidently, effectively and independently in life.
You will need 4 GCSE passes at grade D in a range of subjects and a GCSE grade C in Art or a completed art project which demonstrates art skills. At least one grade D must be in English Language and/or maths.
Coursework units are internally assessed throughout the year. Students also complete externally set practical examinations towards the end of the year.
Successful completion of the course could lead onto progression in college, an apprenticeship or employment.
