The Level 3 Diploma in Creative Media Production is a two-year programme that is 100% coursework based, which will give you the equivalent qualifications to one and half A levels. You will achieve a Pass, Merit or Distinction Grade at the end of the course that equate to 36, 60 or 84 UCAS tariff points respectively. The course is a good balance of practical and theory and is project-based and industry-focussed and you will complete 8 units over the 2 years. To enable you to respond to the exciting project briefs we are extremely well resourced with professional HD cameras, edit suites, a radio studio and a television studio.
This course can only be taken in conjunction with 2 A level choices at the following schools:
• Henry Box• Wood Green• Chipping Norton• Marlborough• Carterton• Bartholomew • Burford
During the course you will undertake a number of practical and theory units, which will give you a broad understanding and develop your skills in a range of different media related fields. These include making a music video, a radio drama, and a corporate video, as well as researching and studying the creative media sector.
Units 1–4 are linked together to provide you with a sound introduction to the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to explore, enhance and sustain your creative development and determine a good standard from which can develop. You will be given a broad introduction to creative media production and technology that will help you find your strengths and also develop an understanding of the interlinked nature of the media industries.
Units 5–7 will require you to apply your newly acquired skills, knowledge and understanding through a series of more complex and demanding assignments in a range of media platforms. The aim is for you to begin to recognise the unique characteristics of specific creative media and find your own voice and personal interests within this.
Unit 8 is the final unit in the two-year qualification. It will provide you with a measure of self-directed learning through the completion of a substantial creative media production and technology project that is driven by you. This is the unit that will dictate your final grade, therefore it is important it comes last and is a well-developed project that you propose, developing your personal skills and interests.
By the end of this course, as well as the qualification you will have developed an extensive portfolio of professional work, which will help you be ready for your next step, whether it be university or employment in the media industries.
