Covid Update

On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April.

Updated guidance advises:

  • Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and no longer have a high temperature.
  • Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to college when they no longer have a high temperature, and are well enough to attend.
  • Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice is 3 days.

For education and childcare settings from Friday 1 April:

  • Regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in any education or childcare setting, including in SEND, alternative provision and children’s social care settings. Therefore, we will no longer be able to order test kits .

Summary

This exciting one-year course will appeal to learners who have an interest in the creative industries and in the world of the creative arts. It is aimed at providing learners with a detailed overview of the skills, attributes and various disciplines within art and design, before learners focus on a more specialised route of learning later on in their progression.

The Level 1 course in Art and Design is designed to provide an opportunity to inspire, explore, develop and test creativity. This course will cover a broad range of arts subjects in both 2D and 3D.

This Level 1 course is based at our dynamic and exciting WISE Campus, located within easy reach of the city of Bristol and moments away from Bristol Parkway and Bristol Abbey Wood train stations. As well as our Stroud campus in the centre of Gloucestershire, surrounded by the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The campus is a short walk from Stroud train station and easily accessible by bus.

How will I know how I am doing?

A variety of assessment methods will be used to measure your progress from your start point and against your expected outcomes and target grade. These may include practical tasks and assessments, written assignments, performance reviews, presentations and discussions.

Progress will be discussed with your tutor and other delivery staff on the programme.

What do I need to join?

As well as having a keen interest in the subject area, learners will need to possess GCSE grade 1 or 2 in both English and Maths.

Learners will need to be committed, punctual and demonstrate an enthusiasm for learning and taking on new ideas and skills.

Maths & English

A key requirement for future progression and employment is a good understanding and application of knowledge and skills in both English and maths.

Learners who are enrolled on this course will also, as part of their overall programme of study, be enrolled on either a Functional Skills or GCSE course in English and Maths in order to progress towards gaining GCSE grade 4 in both subjects.

 

Employability

We aim to provide you with the skills required to be able to progress into further study and training or employment upon completion of your programme of study.

Key attributes required by employers are that individuals be enthusiastic, motivated, presentable (in some instances in company uniform), organised, articulate, able to think 'outside the box', business-like and enterprising, and that they have a 'can-do' attitude.

We work on all these areas throughout the duration of your programme of study, and your tutor(s) will provide feedback on progress made, as well as areas for development.

Work Experience

As part of your overall programme of study, learners will be required to undertake a period of work placement related to the field of employment they wish to enter.

Our Work Placement Team will assist learners in gaining a placement and ensure that you are on track to achieve, whilst liaising with your course tutors to ensure that the opportunity to practice necessary employability skills is available at college.

What can I do next?

Learners who successfully complete will be eligible for progression onto a Level 2 programme of study or an apprenticeship in a related discipline.

What are my career options?

Many students have progressed from Level 1 up through the levels, and then gone to university and been employed in well-paid jobs or started up successful businesses. A career in art is diverse and can include careers in graphic design, illustration, website design, teaching, museum studies and curating, set design, youth work, art therapy and photography, as well as work in the ceramics, textile and fashion industries. The skills and confidence gained on this course will help you to find the direction you want to go in and how to get there.
