This award is designed to enable candidates to gain the fundamental knowledge required for creating websites and producing content for websites, while also gaining practical skills in a range of software applications.

The qualification focuses on technical skills needed in the creation of websites, animation, graphics and interactive media, but also emphasises the importance of the design process and soft skills such as interviewing and responding to feedback.  Some aspects of the qualification also address demands from industry and government for the promotion of “employability skills” such as collaboration, communicating with a client, problem solving and reflective practice, as well as being able to produce aesthetically pleasing and accessible designs.

ASSESSMENT

An integrated approach to assessment will be adopted.  The individual units that comprise the NPA Web Design Fundamentals were designed to allow for the integration of assessment and the practical elements across the three units may be combined into a single extended project.
