Graphics 
ProjectSkills wks/hoursassessment 
Photoplus skills 'show me task'The students are taught the basic tools in photoplus. From this point they create a poster to demonstrate the understanding of these skills appox 2 hours  
Photoplus Jurassic park poster The students develop their skills further using photoplus. They are taught the skills step by step to create the poster. Students document the skills in a progress log approx 3 hours P/M/D
Photoplus film poster The students use the previous skills learnt in photoplus and their own progress log to recreate an iconic film poster. The students document their developments and analyse them for the main features of the poster. The students are introduced to the key graphic componeents from the specification. Colour, line, tone, imagery, typography and compositionapprox 6P/M/D
Rendering skills - crayonStudents develop on rendering skills taught in previous years. They will develop additional skills in the application of adding tone and blending to their work. Students will develop an understanding of colour theory.  approx 3 hours P/M/D
Rendering skills - markerStudents are shown how to render using marker pens. Students learn to graphically communicate products realistically. Apply tone, shading and shadow and learn how to use these with great effect.approx 3 hours  
2d Design skills The students are taught the basic tools in 2d design.  From this point they create a stencil to demonstrate the understanding of these skills. By doing this students then look at using another media- spray paint to test out their stencils. approx 6 hours  
Unitskillswks/hoursassessment 
Unit 1 - Introduction to Graphic design The students will apply the previously gained knowledge.  Learners will develop an understanding of the components of graphic
design. They will do this by working with physical and/or digital materials
and techniques. The learner will be introduced to graphic design
components through personal experimental work. They will demonstrate their understanding of the key graphic componenets
30Internall/externally moderated P/M/D 
Unit 2 - Graphic design practice Learners will explore design disciplines, examine the work of recognised
designers and use their understanding of design components to identify
successful design practice. They will choose one discipline, select some
work by a recognised designer in that discipline and create their own piece
of graphic design, taking inspiration from their research and using
components found in the work of their chosen designer. They will develop evlauative skills throughout
30Internall/externally moderated P/M/D 
Unit 3 - Responding to a graphic design brief Learners will analyse the requirement of a graphic design brief. They will
understand the requirements and develop some possible ideas to meet the brief. The learner will further develop an idea and present their final
graphic design. Finally, the learner will analyse their work and review how
they have met the brief.
30Internall/externally moderated P/M/D 
Unit 4 - Graphic design portfolio Learners will explore working in the graphic design industry, by looking at
different ways to present work to understand different types of portfolio.
They will then design and create their own portfolio and review how the
portfolio presents their skills as a graphic designer. The students will select the best 6 pieces from the previous units to present in a unique way
