Level 2 BTEC Diploma in Creative Media Skills

For anyone who wishes to explore the dynamic digital world of creative media, your creativity and flair will be harnessed in the design and production of media products used within the industry, alongside creating a strong portfolio of photographic images.

Units include:

  • skills development
  • creative media project
  • personal development
  • responding to a creative brief
  • how to plan and pitch ideas
  • developing a digital portfolio.

This course will help you develop your skills in photography, graphic design, filmmaking and radio production. You will have the chance to work in our TV and radio studios and get involved with our online radio station JAMM Radio, as well as focusing on producing an online blog and digital portfolio. You will also have the opportunity to gain valuable work experience within the industry.

A minimum of five GCSEs at grade 3 or above, including English.

To give you the best possible chance of successfully completing your qualification, 100% attendance is expected for the duration of the course. English, maths, work experience, tutorials and employability sessions all form part of the overall qualification and non-attendance to any of these sessions may result in the overall qualification not being achieved. Continued non-attendance to any timetabled sessions may result in losing your place on the course.

This course combines both theory and practical sessions and you will be assessed in a variety of ways (activity, group work, photographic and video) which will be presented through a portfolio of evidence.

All our courses are planned around your individual learning needs, with a timetable that clearly identifies the sessions that will be taught. You will be assigned a Programme Lead who will support you throughout your time in College. Teaching staff will work closely with you to help you achieve planned learning goals. Our staff are experienced at delivering classes to meet your needs and will work with you to build your confidence and skills. Our learning centres are equipped with modern resources that will support you to achieve positive outcomes.
