BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma in Production Arts (Make Up) at The Creative & Media Studio School at Netherhall Learning Campus
This qualification is equivalent to an A Level.
BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma in Production Arts allows students to develop the core specialist knowledge, understanding and skills in production arts, required by the sector. The qualification provides learners with an element of sector specialism as part of their wider programme by developing a primary core of knowledge in the sector through distinctive mandatory content in each pathway. It also offers some opportunity for learners to focus their study on the aspects that will be of greatest value to them through a limited choice of optional units related to each pathway, such as production arts planning, mask making or scenic painting.
By studying a BTEC National, students develop knowledge, understanding and skills required by the sector, including essential employability skills, and apply them in real work contexts. Learners can operate at a standard that can reasonably be expected of an 18 year old in fulltime education.

Discretionary Bursary Fund
The Creative and Media Studio School also has a Discretionary Bursary Fund. The criteria for this fund is set by ourselves.
How can this help me?
This fund is for Students who are facing genuine financial barriers to participating in education. Its aim is to help with essentials and is not a cash payment, but a payment in kind for particular items needed. Typical ways this fund has been used by the Studio School includes
- Bus passes to and from College, where the distance travelled justifies this
- Specialist course equipment
- Costs incurred for placements and business engagement opportunities
- Transports and fees for course events/trips/university visits
- Transports and fees for enrichment events offered, or arranged, by the Studio School which could benefit the student’s progression routes
As a Studio School we have a duty to ensure all funds are awarded fairly to students most in need, therefore, all applications cannot be guaranteed. We ask that all students are:
- Are under 19 years at the start of the year the bursary is needed for
- Have at least 90 % attendance
- Are meeting expectations for good behaviour and progress
- Are in receipt of Free School Meals
Students who received Free School Meals do not automatically receive them at Post 16. Applications to the Local Authority must be made by the parents. We urge parents to make an application for FSM if this was the case at High School OR if your family circumstances have changed recently. To apply for FSM, please contact Kirklees Local Authority on 01484 221928, stating that your child is on roll at the Creative and Media Studio School at Netherhall Learning Campus and you would like to discuss FSM with the relevant department.
How to apply:
Application Forms to the Discretionary Bursary Fund can be collected from Angela Shufflebottom or the main NLC School Admin Office. Please fill in the form, ensuring you:
- Meet the above eligibility criteria
- Complete the application form answering all the questions in full – don’t forget to sign it

Ask your child to hand in the application form, with evidence, to Angela Shufflebottom or myself at the Studio School main office.
Notice for Parents: The Studio School provides students with their starter packs; however the course does require the ongoing purchasing of cosmetics. We do offer a bursary fund to support students on free school meals and for students experiencing unexpected hardship. Please speak to the course tutor

Please note: Whilst the C&MSS will do all we can to accommodate your course preferences, we have to ensure the course numbers are viable. Should a course not run due to low numbers in this option, we will inform you at the earliest opportunity. This is usually before the end of your GCSES so you have plenty time to reconsider your options.
