This Level 6 opportunity allows students to ‘explore’ and ‘develop’ as individuals, whilst working collaboratively within their design specialisms and towards their personal goals and ambitions. The course has taken students on a personal journey, developing empathy for themselves, whilst considering concepts and recommendations for the end user and the client.

Design Management encourages students to take ownership and build on the skills and knowledge acquired, in order to become effective within their own design focus/professional design specialism. One of the most significant and noticeable outcomes has been the development in ‘confidence’ and this has been demonstrated throughout the modules.

Students have identified their own research aims and developed detailed written/visual reports, produced and delivered visual presentations and exhibitions, with the aim of being able to professionally communicate an effective response to an audience.
