The aim of this Diploma is to allow learners to compile a portfolio of evidence to show their readiness and ability to progress onto a range of art and design related degrees. The Diploma will equip learners with fundamental research and practical skills needed for creative degrees.
The Diploma will allow adults from non-conventional academic backgrounds to enter a Diploma and progress to Higher Education This is possible through the combination of units which allow learners to have a thorough grounding in art and design. If the learner has gone straight into employment, they may not have studied at Level 3 and so this Diploma will be useful in supporting their existing skills and provide a good grounding for further study.
The Diploma will provide Learners with underpinning skills to support academic study and provide a level 3 qualification linked to their proposed HE study. A broad range of skills related to art and design will be acquired, whilst the underpinning skills within the ungraded units will ensure that the learner is fully prepared for progression onto relevant degrees.

Following successful completion of this Diploma, learners will be able to progress to University to study design for publishing, art history, magazine publishing media cultures, advertising and a range of other pathways.
