The UAL Level 2 Certificate in Applied Drawing is a Technical Award and has been designed to equip learners with knowledge and skills required in the use and application of drawing across all subjects.

As part of the qualification, learners will gain an understanding of the value of drawing as a tool for creative activity as well as understanding the different contexts, approaches and disciplines within which drawing operates such as fine art, design, mathematics, medicine, science and game design.

The qualification is primarily designed for learners who are 14-16, but may also be suitable for other learners studying appropriate level 2 or 3 qualifications.

About Technical Awards

Technical Awards are broad, high-quality Level 1 and Level 2 qualifications that equip students with applied knowledge and associated practical skills, not usually acquired through general education. They focus on the applied study of an industry sector or occupational area, or the acquisition of practical and technical skills.

Technical Awards will fulfil entry requirements for both academic and vocational study post-16, alongside GCSEs.
