BTEC Level 2 in Art and Design
You will need either:
Four GSCEs at Grade D or above (including English and Art), or a Foundation Level qualification in Art and Design.
If you are coming for an interview for any of the courses in Art, Design, Photography and Fashion, you will need to bring with you a portfolio of work that demonstrates your creativity, enthusiasm and shows the skills you have already developed. This portfolio could include GCSE coursework and work you do in your own time. During your interview we will look through your portfolio so we can help you join the course that is right for you.
This fast-paced course will help you decide in which area of Art and Design you wish to specialise, build your confidence and prepare you for entry on to specialist A Levels, BTEC Nationals or employment. You’ll explore a diverse range of specialisms within Art and Design, including drawing, fine art, textiles and graphic design, and work in a range of media and materials from charcoal to electronic media. You’ll be guided and supported throughout the course, which is based on project work and regular assessment, and at the end, you’ll write and complete a final major project in your chosen field and mount an exhibition of your work. In all project work, you’ll be encouraged to develop literacy and numeracy skills, and study GCSE English and Maths, if necessary.
