Summary of Programme:
Duration: 1 year (full-time), 2 years (part-time)
Delivery: On-site or Distance Delivery (study from home)
Major and Minor Courses:
The Diploma of Art and Creativity programme (NZQA Level 5) is one year full-time (equivalent 30 hours per week), or two years part-time (equivalent 15 hours per week).
The Diploma of Art and Creativity programme focuses on increasing coherence and technical skills. Students develop a sound skill base for their creative processes and interests and produce work in line with their own goals.
Students are able to select majors and minors from available courses. This is supported with on-site classes, distance learning resources and supervised independent study. Students are encouraged by tutors and mentors to increase their level of self-direction and focus, and write their own briefs for each major and minor course.
Diploma students will produce work suitable for The Learning Connexion exhibitions. Involvement in exhibitions helps students build confidence and understand how their work is connecting with a wider audience. It is also a great way to learn about the basics of business. Feedback from tutors and mentors is supplemented by the experience of having work on show to the general public.
