Students may choose to build a qualification around one subject area, e.g. Art & Design. Alternatively it is possible to build a qualification from a range of subject areas, e.g. Art & Design, Drama and Media Studies to give learners a more general experience. The qualification is available at Entry 2 and 3 and Progression to Level 1 and 2 will build on ability. Pre entry level 2 students will access Arts award.
Last year for the first time we entered pupils for the Level 1 and 2 Creative and Media course. This qualification is designed to develop pupil media skills and prepare them for the world of work. Students are asked to design a product for a user and then assess its effectiveness and their own work. Last year we designed a website for an animal charity and this year we are working on a film. All students who took the course passed and 3 achieved a level 2.
Below are some examples of the websites created by our media students recently.
