BTEC courses give learners considerable freedom to display their artistic talents, while developing their practical skills and the knowledge they need to progress as artists in related fields, such as photography and graphic design . Ongoing assessment with no end-of-year examinations ensures that learners remain engaged throughout their course.
Rewarding hard work and effort
Students learn best when they can apply their own knowledge, skills and enthusiasm to a subject. In a subject like Art and Design it is often the case that learners are already motivated, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. It is only appropriate that this natural energy should be focused and rewarded. Assessment is ongoing, motivating students to analyse and improve their own performance, and their hard work is rewarded.
Engaging for everyone
The vocational learning style is completely different from the more traditional routes. Students research their topics and present results in a wide variety of ways other than written text. They don’t have to work alone; group interaction can often play a part, for example though teamwork.
A firm foundation
Our qualifications provide learners with a broad-based approach. Core units teach essential skills, making good use of a wide variety of media and technology.
Freedom to explore
The optional units allow for a high degree of specialisation to cater for a learner’s individual interests and abilities. There is plenty of opportunity for sustained and in-depth exploration of a chosen field.
Links with the Community
Project briefs and assignments form the basis of the vocational content. The qualifications are designed to encourage links with local practising artists to give learners a greater understanding of the vocation.
