Course description

Please note:

To apply for this course online you need to go to the Daventry Learning Partnership page.

The Single Award is equivalent to one A level. The Double Award is equivalent to two A levels.

This course is ideal if you have a general interest in Art & Design and are looking to explore your own creativity. You'll experiment with ideas and media, and produce a range of final pieces. It's particularly suitable if you're aiming to progress to an Art Degree or HND.

Course content

The Single Award gives you the opportunity to experiment with 2D and 3D materials and techniques; work on a set project; investigate the work of artists, designers and crafts people; develop specialist skills in fine art, including painting, printmaking, sculpture, jewellery, ceramics and textiles; and demonstrate your achievement through your chosen specialist subject. As well as the six units comprising the Single Award, the Double Award includes working in either 2D or 3D; producing a set project; learning Professional Practice; preparing a portfolio; and either interpreting a written brief through fashion, textile, craft, graphic design or product design, or working with multimedia, such as film and photography.

Entry requirements

Entry onto the programme requires a minimum of five GCSEs at Grade C or above (or equivalent), including English and/or Maths and any subject that you have studies at GCSE level and wish to continue to A Level. Entry for some subjects may require a particular GCSE grade B or C.


All marks are based on coursework and an externally set unit, so you'll need to be able to work independently and be able to communicate your ideas visually.

Future opportunities

Employment, Higher Education or further study for a Professional Qualification.
