New College Nottingham

Students at New College Nottingham on the Level 3 Extended Diploma were encouraged to treat the work for Unit 8 (Developing an art and design project) as a Final Major Project.

There are three distinct pathways within the qualification:

  • Fine Art
  • Design
  • Fashion/Textiles

Students proposed and devised their own project. A project proposal was produced by each student and initial study trips were organised tailored to each pathway theme to support this. 

These activities formed the basis of the project's requirements and planning needs (giving the opportunity to meet assessment criteria 1.1, 2.3)
