We’ve worked with teachers to develop a qualification that encourages students to develop their skills across a range of disciplines. It provides a foundation for students to pursue further education or to continue their own creative journeys.
We’re developing a range of resources to help you teach with confidence. We’ll also be hosting free events to inspire your course delivery and supporting your marking with exhibitions of live work.
Our specification is flexible and accessible: you can tailor your course to your students’ interests and your school’s strengths.
