Scheme of Work
Our scheme of work is skills based because we want to ensure that our learners gain the same important key skills in their first two years. Please see the downloads section for an overview.
We have devised our own subject specific assessment system that we hope is thorough, transparent and an aid to learning and progress. Students are regularly assessed within each teaching group to determin the level of support they need in a given skill. This enables us to target learners who need help and provide space for the more able learner to work independently and provide peer support. You can view the Scheme of Work Here
Please take a look at the department blog which can be found @ theartwrx
We have also created an online resource for students to make collections and look for inspiration @ imageshack
To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place…I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.
