Creative Media - Digital Production Level 1 at Sheffield College
This is a one year full time course.
About the course
This Digital Production course covers a range of subjects from video and audio production to photography and image manipulation. No previous experience is required but you need to be interested in how media products are produced. The course is very practical in nature. You will design and produce a series of products across a number of assignments. You will have training on professional production and editing equipment.
On the course, you will study a wide range of subjects that will give you a broad experience in production. This will allow you to explore many options that you can then take to your studies to a higher level.
As a part of this course you will improve your communication skills and develop independent learning techniques. On your programme you will study for English and Maths qualifications, if you do not already hold a minimum GCSE grade C.
There is a £25 studio fee that will enable you access to all of the necessary materials for the full year. Course enrichment activities can include trips, visits and sessions by guest speakers to help broaden your studies whilst on the course. You may be entitled to help from the college’s Learner Support Fund with the cost of trips and anything else you need to buy for your course.
Staff and Facilities
You will learn from highly qualified and experienced staff with a range of academic and professional media experience. The course will be based in the new building at Hillsborough College or at Peaks College. You will have access to excellent facilities to help you with your productions.
Will this course suit me?
If you enjoy hands on production and have a curiosity as to how media products are made, this could be the course for you. You should have a positive attitude, a lively and enquiring mind and a willingness to explore new ideas.
