Lexi has been employed to design and implement the Cert 4 in Design (graphic design) and has been given time and a relatively small budget to design the course to begin in a months time.
The course will have a face to face component of 6 hours/week in a new design studio but students are expected to work on projects outside of those hours.

Lexi has been given the name of a good text book used in other RTOs but she wants to design a program that is relevant to her students and local industry needs.
