There are two units to complete, one in Year 10 and one in Year 11. Each unit follows a given brief and the brief changes every two years. The course is 100% coursework with no exam at the end of Year 11, although both units must be passed.

  • establish the ‘who, why, where and what’ requirements for publications.

  • produce an up-front plan to help them manage a project and use it to track, monitor and communicate progress.

  • select and capture information from various sources and use spreadsheets and database tools to collate and analyse data.

  • build an eportfolio that presents their achievements, giving ‘pride of place’ to project outcomes.

  • evaluate the effectiveness of publications they produce and assess the contributions of underpinning processes, such as planning and testing, to their success.

Unit 3 – Graphics (Examining body website)

This unit provides learners with the knowledge and skills they need to design and produce effective graphic products that communicate successfully onscreen and in print. Learners will discover how to:

  • use vector and bitmap tools to develop graphic elements.

  • use testing and feedback from others as an integral part of an iterative development process from initial designs through to final products.

  • exhibit their achievements in an eportfolio.

  • evaluate the effectiveness of graphic products they produce and assess the contribution of underpinning process, such as planning and use of feedback, to their success.
