This qualification is part of the Creative Arts and Culture Training Package. It reflects the role of individuals who have highly specialised technical, creative and conceptual skills in visual communication to conceive, negotiate and realise design solutions. Practice at this level is underpinned by the application of visual communication and design theory and history and the ability to critically analyse and synthesise information from a range of sources. Advanced communication, organisational and project management skills are also required. Practitioners may work in many different commercial and community contexts across both print and digital media.
