2 Extended Certificate

The Level 2 Extended Certificate in Digital Art and Design aims to provide education and training in the art and design sector for:

* Students aged 16-18 years.

* Adults seeking their first full level 2 qualification.

This course gives students the opportunity to develop an understanding of how the development and creative process works from initial ideas to finished digital production in Art and Graphic Design.

Students will develop skills in the following:

Research skills

Design production

Advertising

Digital Art and Design

Adobe Illustrator

Web Design

The course includes support to improve literacy and numeracy skills.

As part of the interview process we will be assessing your ability to represent your ideas visually. Please bring a portfolio or samples of your visual work, e.g. drawings, sketches, digital art and photography drawings. Don’t worry if you haven’t got any of these at the moment; you still have time before the interview date to produce some examples of how your ideas might look visually. Please ensure you bring these with you. If you arrive without them it will mean we cannot offer you a place on the course.
