At least Distinction in BTEC Level 2 Diploma or 2 Distinctions and 1 Merit in BTEC Level 2 Extended Certificates if taken as a Year 12 one year course.
Students will produce a portfolio of work. The course is broken down into 4 units of work in which 3 are mandatory and 2 of these are externally set by the exam board.
Students will be given 360 guided learning hours in which to complete the 4 units.
The qualification is intended to carry UCAS points and is recognised by higher education providers as contributing to meeting admission requirements for many courses, if taken alongside other Level 3 qualifications as part of a two-year programme of learning. Depending on the other qualifications learners have taken, they can progress to a degree programme from a range of programmes in the art and design sector.
Extra-curricular opportunities look to take students on inspirational trips and exhibitions to enhance motivation and stimulate minds.
Twilight and lunch time clubs are offered on a weekly basis throughout the year to actively encourage coursework progression, individual growth and interest within the subject and gain additional teacher guidance and support.
