Computing - Media Studies KS5 | Rainhill High School

Computing - Media Studies KS5

Our Level 3 Cambridge Technicals in Digital Media qualification is a balanced mix between externally assessed units (exams) and practical production units. It allows a practical student to engage all aspects of media production from pre-production through to post-production. Theory elements will be given a practical framework to allow learners to see the link behind such work in the practical context.

The course helps learners develop the knowledge and skills that will prepare them for further study and to work in a collaborative industry. They will develop an awareness of the world of digital media and design and the factors and contexts that influence it.

Learners will:

  • develop creative processes and the ability to critically evaluate their work to continually review and refine ideas
  • learn how to combine innovative approaches and techniques to solve problems creatively
  • expand their knowledge of digital media by exploring different designers, processes and concepts.
