"CTEC Design is an interesting and creative subject, which allows you to problem solve through design. I particularly enjoy working with real life clients as this helps me understand what architecture is like in the real world, and provides relevant experience to support me in moving forward to higher education". Tom Lowe, upper sixth student

What do I need to study this course?

You will need five GCSEs at grade 4, which should include GCSE English Language, GCSE Maths, and a GCSE in either Art or Design (if studied). If you did not have the opportunity to study Art or Design at GCSE entry onto the course will be dependent on the successful completion of a design task set by the department.

What will I study?

You will create a range of ideas for different interior and architectural design briefs that will develop your communication skills through both hand and CAD-based drawing techniques. You will also be required to create 3D scale models to give a realistic impression of design proposals. You will develop an understanding of the key trends and movements in architecture, investigating the work of others and making use of different styles and concepts to develop your own work.
