Work by students at the Lincoln School of Art and Design has been selected by the exam board Edexcel as an example of good practice.


During a recent visit to the school Edexcel qualifications leader John Davies saw samples of National Diploma work from the many art and design courses taught at the school, which is part of the University of Lincoln.


Examples of student work from Product Design, Photography, Graphic Design, Craft, Fashion and Theatre Craft courses were examined and were deemed to be of such good quality that Mr Davies requested photographs to be taken.


“This work will be used by Edexcel to develop an understanding of standards in art and design and to disseminate good practice,” said Mr Davies. “The photographs will be used in training materials for both moderators and tutors.”


Stewart Bibby, National Diploma Design co-ordinator, is delighted by the news. “To have the good quality of the student work recognised in this way is a credit to the hard work of both the staff and the students,” he said.


Edexcel was formed in 1996 by the merger of BTEC (the Business and Technology Education Council) and ULEAC (the University of London Examinations and Assessment Council). 


Edexcel provides a wide range of qualifications to cater for all needs and learning styles.
