What is Creative iMedia?
Creative iMedia is a vocational course which equips students with a wide range of knowledge and skills needed to work in the creative digital media sector. They start at the pre-production phase and develop their skills through a number of practical assignments as they create a number of different multimedia products.
How does the course break down?
There are two mandatory parts to the course; the first introduces students to a range of essential pre-production techniques used in the creative and digital media. The second unit sees students explore where and why digital graphics are used and the techniques that are involved in their creation. Finally, two further units are selected exploring different elements of creative digital media.
How is the course assessed and what does it lead to?
Students complete three pieces of coursework throughout the two-year course, each worth 25% of their final grade. There is one written exam worth the remaining 25% of their grade. The course could lead to a level 3 qualification at college and then onto a career in graphic design, marketing and beyond in the digital media sector.
