BTEC Foundation GNVQ offers a basic introduction to art and design.
Students on this course will begin to develop an understanding of the work
of other artists
and crafts people.
They will also, through their own work, begin to explore line, colour and
form during practical workshop sessions. Students are introduced to a
variety of materials and methods. They are encouraged to explore and
experiment with visual ideas and techniques. All students prepare a folder
of work and are required to evaluate and present this.

numeracy which would enable achievement, or some related work experience.

for employment or further training.
