About Level 1/2 Award Visual Communication 3755 Syllabus
Our Level 1/2 Awards in non-EBacc subjects are ideally suited to learners with a preference for practical, in addition to, theoretical learning. Many of them are tailored towards specific career areas and all have a focus on creativity.
These vocational qualifications fulfil entry requirements for academic and vocational study post-16, and will count as equivalent to one GCSE in the Key Stage 4 performance tables.
Who is this Level 1/2 Award in Visual Communication for?
This qualification is designed for 14–16 year olds who want to study Visual Communication in a hands on, practical way that helps them develop the knowledge, skills and experience that could open the door to a career in industry.
What will learners study?
Learners complete three mandatory units (one externally assessed and two internally assessed) across 120 guided learning hours.
Unit 1: Skills Demonstration (internally assessed)
Learners will carry out a number of bite-sized projects to demonstrate their competence in the eight core skills outlined. This will include the transferable skill of teamwork and one of the mini projects should allow for this. As part of this learners will draw on knowledge of the relevant techniques and how to select the most appropriate for the project they are undertaking. Learners will produce a series of small made outcomes and record their work in a portfolio of no more than 15 pages. This should include reflection on how they have applied the associated knowledge.
Unit 2: Extended making project (internally assessed)
Learners will undertake an extended project that showcases the skills they have developed in unit 1 and knowledge they have developed through Unit 2. The project will be in response to a brief, examples of which are included in Unit 2: Extended making project. Learners will develop skills, knowledge and understanding in planning and development, making, testing and evaluation and communication.
Unit 3: Fundamentals of visual communication (externally assessed)
Learners will study the fundamentals of the Visual Communication industry and the industrial and commercial processes that exist within it. They will learn about materials and their properties and also about possible careers within the industry.
Will the knowledge and skills developed be useful for further studies?
This Level 1/2 Award in Visual Communication gives learners a whole host of technical transferable skills. They include:
The course will develop a wide range of practical making skills incorporating drawing and sketching in 2D and 3D, using digital software, application of colour theory and image capture and manipulation.
Learners will also develop an understanding of commercial processes and an in-depth knowledge of graphic based materials and their properties.
Which subjects complement this course?
