Course Overview

For a career as a designer you will need to be both technically skilled and a creative thinker. The Level 3 Design Apprenticeship will equip you with 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.

What will I learn?

Competence: Aim Awards Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Design

The NVQ ‘work competency’ element requires you to gather evidence as you work which you present to your assessor in the workplace and by digital submission. This qualification is only available through work-based learning, and so can be a great addition to your CV even if you already have a level 3 qualification.

Knowledge: BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma in Art and Design

Alongside your job role, you will also work for a BTEC Subsidiary Diploma in Design. Apprentices use part of their 20% ‘off the job’ time to fulfil four BTEC assignment coursework briefs over the course of the 18-24 month apprenticeship.
