Level 3 Extended Diploma in Art and Design

The Extended Diploma builds on from the Level 3 Diploma course and is the equivalent of three A Levels. This course will refine and develop skills acquired in the first year in preparation for university and employment, along with apprenticeships. Throughout this second year you will develop a greater sense of independence and creativity, extending, refining and developing your skills whilst specialising in one area of art and design.

Units you may study include:
Characteristics and contexts in art and design
Preparation for progression in art and design
Engaging with an audience
Project proposal and realisation
Work experience
Client-based projects
Employability skills

Ideally at least 5 GCSEs at grade 9-5 or A*-C including English, Maths and a creative subject or a Level 2 qualification, but this is subject to discussion at your interview. If you haven’t already achieved a GCSE grade 5 or grade C in English or Maths, then you will study either GCSE or Functional Skills English or Maths alongside your other qualifications.

Students may have the opportunity to study additional subjects and participate in sporting, social or enterprising activities. Examples of the various activities will be made available to you by your tutors; opportunities are varied and change each year.

We plan to offer work experience, employer talks, employer visits and other employer involvement in all our programmes.

After completing your course you could progress on to study design, fine art, cinematics, film, photography, interior design, fashion or related fields at university. Alternatively, you could progress straight into employment including apprenticeships. Studying art and design could lead to a career as a graphic designer, fine artist, gallery or museum curator, printmaker, fashion designer, photographer, illustrator, sculptor and many other opportunities.
