The WJEC syllabus encourages a broad approach that allows students to develop a sound grounding in several 3D areas. It is able to accommodate particular areas of interest that you may wish to pursue.


The main skills developed through this course include: 

· The artistic-creative knowledge and understanding associated with 3 dimensional design including sculpture.

· Research, analysis, discussion and evaluation of 3 dimensional design techniques and products.

· The development of specialist terminology related directly to 3 dimensional design processes. 

· Organisation, selection and communication of ideas, solutions and responses in creative and original ways.

· How ideas, feelings and meanings can be conveyed and interpreted through 3 dimensional design and products. 

· A variety of practical skills using a range of resistant materials.

You will need to spend a minimum of 5 hours per week of study time on homework tasks to continue and add to coursework. You will be expected to take part in at least one primary research visit that will be organised in Year 12. You will need to seek opportunities to broaden your knowledge and understanding of 3D Design through visits to exhibitions and the purchase of specialist materials will be necessary throughout the course. £20 is required by every student to contribute to the overall cost of materials used within each A Level ADT option. This is due to a number of expensive materials being used in all areas across the 2 years of the course.
