Pathway

Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

There is a materials charge of $12.00 which covers the use of more expensive consumables, that it would be prohibitive to expect parents to purchase.

Recommended Prior Learning

Good organisational skills and reasonable communication skills will be a big advantage to you. An ability to stick at something is also essential. If you are the type of person who flits from one thing to another, then you will struggle with the in depth study that Design requires.
