  • Who is it for?

    If you have an interest in graphics, animation, photography, games development or film-making then this course offers you the opportunity to use industry standard software and equipment to create media products based on exciting briefs and your own imagination. This course is ideal for those who want to progress to Level 3 because it gives you time to explore the tools and techniques of the creative media industries with the guidance of tutors who specialise in these fields.

  • Entry Requirements

    A minimum of three GCSE at grade 3 or above preferably including English.


  • What does the course involve?

    During this 1 year course you will undertake practical 'hands on' projects to develop your creative skills and knowledge to create a variety of products such as films, games, animation and graphics. The focus is on exploration and experimentation so you can try a wide range of disciplines to discover which one you enjoy the most. You will learn to use industry standard equipment and software during workshop sessions and guided studio time using working on both PCs and Apple Macs. The software we use includes: Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, After Effects, Audition, InDesign, Flash and Blender. You will learn about how the creative industries work and be able to build a portfolio of your skills through a series of directed briefs as well as a final major project. There will be visits throughout the year to educate and inspire you in your project work. Each year we hold an exhibition of students’ work for an audience of invited guests who include prospective employers as well as your friends and family.

    This qualification will give you the knowledge and experience to help you progress onto our Level 3 Creative Media course where you can begin to specialise in a chosen area. Many of our students progress to the Level 3 course and then on to higher education for courses in film-making, animation, graphic design and games development.

  • How much does it cost?

    During the course most of the equipment you need will be supplied, however you will need to pay for printing costs beyond the £15 each student receives at the start of the year and some educational visits may also incur a charge. We advise that students have some form of storage media (USB Flash Drive or SD card) for back up and transport of work in order to complete homework.

I have always enjoyed concept art and design, so this course was recommended to me. At the Open Evening everyone seemed knowledgeable and inviting. I will be progressing onto Level 3 next year and then I would like to explore concept art and drawing, possibly getting a tattoo Apprenticeship.
