WJEC GCSE Draft Specification and Sample Assessment Materials now available for Art and Design (Wales only)

Our GCSE Art and Design qualification, for first teaching from September 2016, has been developed in line with the requirements of Welsh Government. Our draft specification is designed to:

  • provide engaging, challenging, coherent and meaningful learning experiences through a flexible structure that supports the sequential and incremental development of creative practice
  • encourage adventurous and open programmes of study that promote purposeful exploration, experimentation and opportunities for productive personal expression
  • enable students to build skills and become confident in taking risks and learn from experience when exploring and experimenting with ideas, processes, media, materials and techniques
  • broaden experience, foster creativity, develop imagination and technical skills
  • develop critical, practical and theoretical skills that enable students to gain a holistic understanding of a range of practices and contexts in visual arts, crafts and design fields

Our draft specification and sample assessment materials are now available to download.
