You must have a minimum of five GCSEs at grades 9-4, including a grade 4 in English Language.
It is preferable that you have a Level 2 qualification in an art-based subject (e.g. a Merit at BTEC or a grade 4 at GCSE). If you don’t, you will need to bring a portfolio of work to your interview which we will review as part of the enrolment process.
This course will provide you with the opportunity to explore Photography as a medium. You will go on trips to places like the Deep and many art galleries to grow your portfolio and help you to understand different techniques. Within college, you will be able to take part in our Upskilling Programme and our Creative Arts Festival, where you will be able to showcase your work at the end of the year.
A Level Art & Design (Photography) is the perfect basis for a degree in an art-based or creative subject like Photography or Fine Art. This Level 3 qualification can also prepare you for a higher-level apprenticeship.
Students who complete a qualification in Photography go on to a wide variety of jobs. These can include: Graphic Designer, Photographer, Camera Operator, Features Editor, Video Editor or Teacher, to name a few.
