ABOUT THE COURSE
The Level 5 BTEC Higher National Diploma in Art and Design is designed to support progression into relevant occupational areas, or on to degree-level study at level 6. The course builds on skills and knowledge gained through previous study or experience within Art and Design, enabling learners to apply those principles more widely. Learners are encouraged to innovate and to critically examine different approaches to solving art and design problems. The course aims to develop the necessary qualities for learners to perform effectively in their chosen area of specialism at a professional level, in preparation for employment, self-employment or further study. Live projects and increasing levels of independence throughout this course involve learners in personal responsibility and decision-making. Art Practice provides consideration of broad areas of the subject followed by greater specialisation, based on either employer needs or student areas of interest. Art Practice encompasses all forms of traditional ‘studio practice’ such as drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, commercial practices such as graphic design, illustration, 3D design, public art, or alternative practices such as conceptual art and performance based practice. Fashion & Textiles provides a framework to support students to develop in-depth knowledge and skills associated with the Fashion and / or Textiles industry. This pathway provides consideration of broad areas of the subject followed by specialisation in a chosen area of fashion or textiles design or promotion, based on either employer needs or student areas of interest.
