Course description

L3 Foundation in Art and Design

Our BTEC Foundation Diploma in Art and Design is a one-year course that focuses on critical awareness, creative abilities, and building practical and theoretical skills.

The qualification offers learners the opportunity to experiment widely and take creative risks in order to develop a broad portfolio of work and professional behaviours required for progression. It also provides opportunities to develop art, design and media skills over the course of study through a process of self-direction, reflective practice and communication, which are key skills for progression to higher education and personal development as an artist. These requirements mean that learners develop the transferable and higher-order skills that are demanded by universities and employers.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This accredited course (BTEC Level 3 National 540 Diploma) is aimed at those who are considering Further or Higher Education studies in art and design, those who are considering a career in the visual arts or those wishing to advance their art and design practice in a structured environment with professional guidance. You should have some experience of art and design already, and entry to the course is dependent on a short informal interview in which you will be expected to present a portfolio of work.
