Is this course for me?
The Level 2 Diploma in Digital Media Production & Technology has been designed to provide students with the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to progress to further study and training in a range of media related subjects. The course includes units in video production, audio production, interactive media and a final major project.
What will I learn?
The qualification is made up of eight units, which students must successfully complete. All units relate to the digital media sector and are delivered through a variety of practical projects.
Students are assessed via a Final Major Project which takes place at the end of the course when they are at their best. This large project allows students to demonstrate all the learning that has taken place through completion of the other units. This unit is graded Pass, Merit or Distinction and determines the overall qualification grade.
What else will I gain?
As part of this course you will improve your communication skills and develop independent learning techniques. On your programme you will also study for English and Maths qualifications if you do not already hold a minimum GCSE grade 4.
