Creative Digital Media

Course Overview

The media industry is in an age of rapid growth with global communication networks bringing the digital age to every home.This is a one year course which will provide you with all of the requisite skills enabling you to progress and thrive on a level 3 programme of study. Although the course is practical, developing skills such as team-building, communication and presentation, there are substantial written elements that have to be covered in each unit.Multi-skilling is encouraged as it plays such an important role in the new media industry. The course is both rewarding and challenging and is designed to assist students in coping with the ever changing world of media and communication.

Level 2A minimum of 4 GCSE’s at grade D including ideally English and Maths.

Digital media is a massively expanding sector especially locally in Manchester with the arrival of organisations such as the BBC and ITV at Media City in Salford Quays.During the course we will visit Media City to see the opportunities that exist and the working practices that are followed. Creative Media will fully prepare you for a specialist career path within the digital media industries.

The course will prepare you for progression to one of our BTEC Level 3 Creative Media pathways (Games Development, TV and Film, Animation and Visual Effects), employment or apprenticeships in media related industries.
