Level 3 Extended Diploma in Creative Media Practice

This course will take your knowledge to the next level, enabling you to prepare and develop a proposal in response to an industry brief using advanced practical, critical and reflective skills.

Based in our £60,000 TV studio, green screen infinity cove and editing suites, you will develop your practical skills, alongside gaining an understanding of the industry, job roles and higher education routes.

Our Creative Media alumnus, Flavio, completed this course and has since progressed to University Centre St Helens to study Media Production.

When will I start the course and how long will it take?

The course will start in September and will take two years to complete.

What will I study?

You will study three units:

  • Personal Progression - You will develop an understanding of industry, employment roles and higher education routes and prepare progression materials relevant to your personal aims.

  • Creative Industry Response - You will develop advanced practical, critical and reflective skills to plan, prepare and develop a proposal for a response to an industry relevant brief and carry it out from concept to resolution.

  • Critical Self-appraisal (optional level 4 unit)

How is it assessed?

This course is assessed internally by highly experienced and skilled creative media tutors, through a practical portfolio of work accompanied by regular academic lessons and assignments. There are no formal exams.

Do I need any previous qualifications to start this course?

You should have four GCSEs at grade 4 (equivalent to grade C) or above, including English and/or maths, and have successfully completed the level 3 National Diploma in Creative Media Practice.

Achieving a good standard of English and maths is a key requirement for many jobs, as well as for courses you may wish to progress on to. If you achieve below a grade 4 in your English and/or maths GCSEs at school, you will study it alongside your chosen course when you join us.
