Diploma in Digital Media

 

Cambridge Technicals are vocational qualifications designed with the workplace in mind and provide a high-quality alternative to A Levels.

 

Vocational education is not just about results, it’s about educating people in the knowledge and skills required for employment and for the community as a whole. It’s also about developing the behaviours and attributes needed to progress and succeed in education and in work.

 

Moving Image & Audio Production pathway

 

From the exam board:

“For this pathway we have worked with a range of small and medium sized organisations such as: Offshoot Foundation, Gabrielle Media, Herbert Art Gallery and ClearSilver to ensure that we are offering the skills, knowledge and understanding that students need to succeed in the sector, and are recognised for creative flair and production skills and techniques in creating audio and moving image media products. This pathway will allow students to gain employment in roles such as Runners, Assistant Camera Operator, Assistant Lighting Camera Person, DPO Consultant, Computer Generated Imagery Artist, Assistant Broadcaster, Audio Mixers, Production Assistant, Promoters; Festivals and Live Music Events.”

 

This is a fantastic, inspiring course that will provide you with loads of skills and confidence to go for a career in the media.

 

Units of study

The course is split into units that will mostly be taught SYNOPOTICALLY. This means that knowledge you gain in one will help with another, so there will be crossover that will help the units to naturally flow together. As you can see from the types of units we have chosen to do, one project will cover several units.

 

Below is a summary of all the units we will be studying:
