Prevocational Creative Arts

The Prevocational Creative Arts course aims to give learners an insight into what studying art might look like if they transitioned onto a level one course next year.

The intention of the course is that learners will be able to practice and develop a range of different skills including; maintaining a scrap book, exploring different art movements, experimenting with photography, learning adobe creative packages and being able to evaluate and reflect.


A Foundation Learning programme designed to re-engage young people with a positive and supportive learning environment by exploring a range of subjects. Art sessions incorporate creative mindfulness activities and projects tailored to meet individual needs and interests.
