Creative Craft Level 1 Award, Level 2 Award and Level 3 Certificate

These awards are part of a suite of qualifications designed to recognise achievement of units and full qualifications. They assess the different skills required in a variety of creative craft, ranging from ceramics and pottery to photography and digital imaging.

The course of study for these qualifications helps learners to:

  • develop basic, intermediate and advanced craft skills;
  • acquire fundamental knowledge of the creative craft process;
  • progress into further study; and
  • build a portfolio (no examination).

Tutors assess learners’ portfolios, and we moderate them. Learners must complete three units for each qualification.

We offer 12 Creative Craft pathways. These awards give learners the opportunity to explore these and choose which one they want to take.
