Course Overview

For a career as a designer, you will need to be both technically skilled and a creative thinker. The Level 2 Design Apprenticeship will start you on your journey to gain these necessary skills and knowledge. Every industry requires designers; roles in design can include graphics, multimedia, fashion and textiles, interiors, architecture, or even tattooing. Our Design Apprenticeships are delivered to you in the workplace giving you the opportunity to be trained by your employer in your chosen specialism. In addition, you will increase your understanding and research skills with assignments set by your assessor.
