This year the Art department at WMC-The Camden College in London is offering NEW exciting Level 1 and Level 2 accredited courses that are nationally recognised by the Open College Network (OCN).
The OCN Level 1 Awards, and Level 2 Certificates accredited courses have been developed to provide learners with an interest in Art and Design, Fashion, Media and Performance the opportunity to explore specific pathways and related materials, methods, processes and technologies to develop strong related technical skills suitable for further studies or employment.
If you want to become a qualified professional, or just learn more about your subject of interest, these industry-recognised Level 1 Awards, and Level 2 Certificates will be your starting point. You will start with the basics and progress to comprehensive understanding of the subject areas covering both theory and practice to enable you to work successfully as a practitioner.
The majority of the learners completing these qualifications will progress to further study or onto Apprenticeships in related industries and some learners may progress directly into entry level roles in the creative and craft industry or self-employment.
The course is funded by the UK government, so if you are eligible you can study for free.
