In this unit students will draw upon the summation of knowledge and skill acquired during their foundation experience. Students will have the opportunity to foster and promote innovative ideas and practical work whilst extending their potential contextual and technical abilities in preparation for their progression to higher education. They will be encouraged to adapt and extend personal ambition whilst understanding the professional context for presenting their finished work. The drafting and submission of a Final Major Project (FMP) Statement of Intent (SoI) will encourage students to focus their creative and applied thinking to set clear and measurable goals. Adopting an informed and reflective approach to their project realisation will ensure that individual ambition becomes a reality. This conclusive learning experience will act as the final stepping-stone for higher education progression. It is anticipated that robust research coupled with a disciplined attention to time management will enable students to structure a professional work ethic. Presenting a final exhibition is the culmination of the students experience whilst at the same time acting as a professional context for sharing their views and opinions. The ability to critically reflect on their ideas, work and studio practice is a key factor in raising personal benchmarks of success for students in this, their Final Major Project. Learning outcomes On completion of this unit a learner should: 1 Be able to submit a personal Statement of Intent 2 Understand the importance of contextual references 3 Know how to solve problems by applying knowledge and experience 4 Be able to present a Final Major Project.
