Main Skills Developed

We will provide students with essential knowledge, transferable skills and tools to improve their

learning in other subjects with the aims of enhancing their employability when they leave

education, contributing to their personal development and future economic well-being. The

qualifications will encourage independence, creativity and awareness of the digital media sector.

The Cambridge Nationals in Creative iMedia will equip students with a range of creative media

skills and provide opportunities to develop, in context, desirable, transferable skills such as

research, planning, and review, working with others and communicating creative concepts

effectively. Through the use of these skills, students will ultimately be creating fit-for-purpose

creative media products.

 

How can parents help to support learning?

Where possible students will benefit from having adequate ICT access at home so that they can practice and develop the skills taught in the classroom.  Encourage students to take a closer look at the media around them and to consider how the concepts and images were developed.  Students should also be encouraged to view a wide range of media sources so that they can reference a range of materials when producing their work.
