Jewellery Manufacture Level 2 Diploma at British Academy of Jewellery

Course description

The qualification framework has been developed after extensive work, designed to give those studying a fantastic grounding in jewellery making skills and understanding.

The programme we have created is covered in just under 300 hours of guided learning by our expert and friendly team. Usually this takes around four and a half months to complete (on a two day per week basis). Progression to a Level 3 can happen just as soon as you are complete and will then allow you to continue to build your skills to an industry standard level.
