Do you have a keen interest in media such as video, graphics, design and photography? This course is ideal if you wish to follow an educational route in media or digital media pathways. The course focuses on the creative design aspects of media products and the related industries and allows you to develop a range of skills before you specialise.
Modules may include:
Alongside these, you will study in detail the various creative industries, specialising in a Major Project at the end of the course in a pathway of your choosing. You will have access to trips and residentials, visiting speakers and professional facilities. Work placements and work readiness take place throughout the course to ensure you are ready to progress your studies or enter the workplace.
Your progress will be assessed through practical and written assignments, and observation by your tutor. You will be encouraged to evaluate your own work and the work of others, and to set targets for yourself in relation to your work and general progress.
You could progress on to a Level 3 course in either art and design, commercial media production, production arts and live events or fashion business retail, or study A Levels subject to a successful interview. Previous Level 2 students who progressed to Level 3 courses continued their studies to degree level, Higher Apprenticeships and found employment in the creative industries.
|Course Title||Media Diploma Level 2|
You need five GCSEs in the 9 to 2 range including English, or an appropriate Level 1 qualification. Entry will also be subject to a successful interview and a portfolio showing examples of your work.
An apprenticeship has been the best option for me since I benefit from working in the industry as well as gaining a qualification. College days give me time to work on my assignments and explore features in the software I haven’t covered at work. During the rest of the week, I develop client relationships which help build my confidence and improve my ability to express ideas.
