Product Design As A2 at The Hermitage Academy
Your A level studies cover four main topics and you will study two of these each year.
AS level : you’ll study Materials, components and application - you will look at materials, production processes and the impact of cost and design in ‘Learning through Designing and Making’; you will produce some coursework using your own design with a range of materials and media.
A2 level: you will consider ‘Design and Manufacture’ helping you to appreciate the relationship between design and technology, or form and function. ‘Design and making in practice’ is the practical, coursework part. You will make an object and record the processes in its creation.
In the first year you’ll have two assessments. A two hour written paper accounts for 25% of your marks and the coursework and your design portfolio account for the final 25% of your A level marks.
Entry Requirements: 5 A* - C including English and Maths
