This six-unit certificate focuses on the workplace skills needed to get started in the Creative Media Industries, such as health and safety, forming productive working relationships, good professional behaviour and knowledge of the sector. Apprentices will gain these vital tools by analysing real-world businesses.
Part 2 - On the Job
Each qualification offers a broad range of units, including ones covering TV, film, games development, interactive and web media. The ability to carry out tasks within a role is learnt and assessed 'on the job\\\', though certain tasks may be realistically simulated where practical.
These are some examples of units which can be taken:
Design for the moving image
Editing for sound and video
Radio production, writing, editing and presentation
Part 3 – Knowledge Building
The knowledge units consolidate 'on the job\\\' learning and deepen learners\\\' understanding of a particular role or skill. They are taught and assessed in an academic setting such as a college or other training provider. Areas covered by this knowledge suite include:
Digital special effects
3D character modelling
Sound special effects
2D/3D game engines
Computer game concept art
Interactive multimedia design
Digital photography and graphics editing.
The training will take place around work patterns with the training provider, apprentice and employer working together to build a flexible timetable.
Apprentices will also learn key skills in areas like communication, teamwork, and health and safety. These skills contribute towards the apprentice\\\'s qualifications and also ensure that they develop a rounded understanding of working within the sector.
Apprentices will work towards the Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Certificate in Creative and Digital Media.
