We are a BTEC qualification centre accredited by Edexcel and all our courses can lead to an internationally recognised qualification, although entry is not obligatory. Our students generally achieve results above the national average. External examiners ensure that students' work meets expected standards.
The BTEC Foundation Diploma in Art and Design is the popular route to prepare for entry to university study. A diagnostic course that encourages you to explore and experiment with different pathways, media and materials in order to identify and specialise in your area of interest. You will develop a portfolio and work on a self-set major project. This is the highest qualification currently offered at the College.
BTEC Subsidiary Diplomas and Certificates are more specialised courses that allow you to focus on an area of your interest right from the start. These qualifications can be either taken as vocational qualifications in their own right or they could form an alternative route for entry to Higher Education.
We also offer our own Diplomas and Certificates which are at the same level as the BTECs but allow more flexibility.You will be given individual advice on which qualification will best suit your needs and which combination of courses is the most appropriate.
