Description

The Photography based pathway is a one-year course and tops up the OCR Level 3 Cambridge Technical Subsidiary Diploma in Art and Design (QCF) - Graphics, into the equivalent of 3 x A Levels. You’ll study a further 9 units. Like the Subsidiary Diploma, a typical unit consists of initial research, experimentation, generating ideas for a brief, developing and presenting ideas to a client. You will use client feedback to refine ideas, presenting a final outcome in response to the brief. Each unit is designed to be delivered as a project, based on commercial outcomes.

Course Content

Units: Exploring Digital Photography, Digital Image Creation, Exploring Film Based Photography, Portrait Photography, Landscape Photography, Exploring Artists as Photographers, How Artists and Designers use 2D Materials Techniques and Processes, Planning Researching Developing Ideas for a Specialist Brief & Exhibiting and Presenting Artwork.

Assessment Method

You’ll be assessed throughout the year and you’ll be expected to complete a range of assignments on an ongoing basis. This includes the production of 2D and 3D work with accompanying sketchbooks and written work, culminating in a final major project and end of year show. Units are delivered by coursework, which is internally assessed and externally moderated. There are no exams.

Progression Opportunities

This course will give you the tools to progress to associated Degree programmes, or move directly into work placements or employment. Students who recently completed the qualification progressed to Degree and HND courses in Northern Ireland, Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales.
