Certificate IV in Design!

Bold Park Community School offers a combination of WACE courses, School-Based Traineeships and Endorsed Programs to empower children to achieve graduation and prepare them for their post-secondary experience.

In 2017, we believed the time was right for Bold Park Community School to further expand our offerings to cater for broader opportunities. To that end, we launched a Certificate IV in Design through an auspicing arrangement with a local Registered Training Organisation (RTO), Mount Pleasant College.

A Certificate IV is a nationally recognised certificate qualification and is also a privileged alternative entry, portfolio pathway many universities.

This pathway allows us to work organically with the General Courses offered in Years 11 and 12; and sits alongside the project-based experience we privilege and strive for at BPCS. The course allows scope for open-ended tasks and exploration of a student’s own creative interests (e.g. animation, business/industry, art, costume, vocational interests, entrepreneurial interests, media, advertising, marketing, etc.)

It is important to note that the Certificate IV in Design course is demanding, with an estimated 650 nominal hours across 15 packaged Units of Competency and is delivered across 2 years (commencing from Year 11 in most cases).

There are only a handful of schools in WA offering a Certificate IV in any course area; with most offering a Certificate II or III. For most schools it is difficult to guarantee the calibre of qualified staff to deliver at the Certificate IV level and the compliance requirements can be cumbersome. Bold Park Community School is well-placed to meet both of these requirements.

Currently our registered training organisation is Mount Pleasant College. To find out more about them please visit their website.
