About... Design and Craft

With careers in Acoustics and Recording, CAD, Film Making, Script Writing, Publishing, Advertising, Computer Games Design, Magazine Illustration etc., on offer, learners can turn their creative and digital hobbies or enthusiasm into a career.  ABC's Level 3 qualifications aim to develop the practical and technical skills employers require to allow their business to compete and progress in their respective world.  

The ABC Diplomas in Foundation Studies in Art, Design and Media at Levels 3 and 4 introduce learners to qualifications that are very broad based, challenging and enriching.

The ABC Level 4 Award, Certificate and Diploma for Business for Creative Practitioners qualifications are aimed at design graduates wishing to enhance and develop their own design business skills management and employability within the creative industries. They also suit designers seeking to understand their clients' business model. Learners will usually take this qualification after completing a course in higher education. An alternative to foundation degrees, the Level 4 is ideally suited to design graduates to assist in their skills development and employability within the sector, and those in the industry (CPD).
