This qualification is part of the Visual Arts, Crafts and Design Training Package. It reflects the role of ceramicists who combine specialised technical, creative and conceptual skills to develop their own ceramics practice. They are able to plan, design and realise a body of ceramic work using in-depth skills specific to ceramics technologies, materials and processes. Practice at this level is underpinned by a sound grasp of ceramics and broader art and design theory and history, as well as the ability to critically analyse and synthesise information from a range of sources. Discourse and communication around complex ideas are also required.
