ICT: Creative iMedia (Optional)

 

This vocationally-related qualification takes an engaging, practical and inspiring approach to learning and assessment. It will equip learners with a range of skills and provide opportunities to develop, in context, transferable skills such as research, planning, and review, working with others and communicating creative concepts effectively.

The hands on approach has strong relevance to the way young people use the technology required in creative media.

75% of this course consists of controlled assessment which is carried out in class through the completion of three units. The remaining 25% of the marks are available from an exam taken either in January or June. The exam will enable learners to understand pre-production skills used in the creative and digital media sector.
