Program description

Awarded by: Pearson Education Ltd

This brand new Level 4 Photography course will enable students to develop their specialist photography skills and multi-disciplinary skills to high standards, through exploration of a wide range of media and techniques. Students will be introduced to creative suite, dark room practices, studio practices, screen printing and a range of other media and techniques. Practical skills development is underpinned with contextual studies that will expose students to the work of contemporary and historical photographers, as well as broader aspects of creative practice and art theory. Professional studies and reflective practice will enable students to gain insights that help them to discover where their interest and skills fit into the creative industries.
A programme of lectures, guest speakers, external trips, work experience, competition briefs, commissions, exhibitions and an overseas trip all enhance cultural knowledge, allow students to gain real world experience and enhance their CV. Students will build a professional quality portfolio to support their progression to further study at Level 5, or into employment or self-employment.
