Course description

They study visual recording and communication, critical analysis and production skills to produce art and design outcomes. It is designed for post-16 learners who aim to progress to higher education and ultimately to employment, possibly in the creative industries, as part of a programme of study alongside other BTEC Nationals or A Levels.

All four units of work will be internally assessed whilst two units will be being externally assessed. The units will be studied over the two years and each unit will be assessed by a coursework assignment. All coursework is collected in a portfolio of evidence.
