Shortlist

Course Overview
Entry to Art offers a fully supported programme for learners on the first step of their Further Education journey in Art.

The programme will give young people the opportunity to break down any barriers they may have to learning, allowing them to grow and develop personally, socially and academically in order to successfully achieve their full potential and progress to their next level of learning or future employment.

The core curriculum will help learners to develop their Art skills in a creative and welcoming atmosphere.

Literacy and numeracy development will be a core focus for all learners and once ready, learners will have the opportunity to undertake Essential Skills Wales qualifications in Communication and Application of Number.

This course offers lots of practical tasks which will also help develop your Maths, English and Digital Literacy skills.

Learners will be assigned a Pastoral Coach who will support them throughout their time on programme. They will ensure that any ALN support is put in place before learners start and that any new support needs that may arise are incorporated into their programme to help them to succeed. The course is fully supported to meet individual needs and learning differences.

Entry to Art is delivered over three days.
Each learner will complete the WEST diagnostic assessments for literacy and numeracy. Students will work towards a range of units to help them achieve an Entry Life & Living Skills qualification, a Prince’s Trust Achieve qualification and a Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award to support further progression into Further Education or Work Based Learning.
The course is designed for learners working at Entry level and so formal qualifications are not required for entry onto this course.

At Coleg Cambria we would encourage you to do the very best that you can in your exams. The better your grades the more options you will have, and may result in you gaining entry onto a higher level course.
Learners will be supported to plan their next steps throughout the course. Progression could be to one of the following:

A higher level course in a vocational area of your choice
Traineeship or apprenticeship programme.
Employment
A community based programme
Some courses may require equipment and/or uniforms to be purchased. Please see attached equipment list for further information.
