Creative and Digital Production Apprenticeship Level 3

This apprenticeship is ideal for anyone who wants to pursue a career within the Creative and Digital sector. You'll work with your employer and gain practical, first-hand experience of the industry whilst also studying at college one day per week to develop your technical knowledge and skills in Photoshop, InDesign and video/animation production, to name a few.


About the Course

During this apprenticeship you will complete a Level 3 Diploma and Certificate in Creative Digital Media.


You will spend the majority of your time each week with your employer, and 1 day per week at college (you will be based at Hillsborough campus) where you will back up the practical work you have undertaken with theoretical study, and also develop your skills in using certain software suits.

Exactly what you will study depends on where your placement is and your responsibilities, but you will certainly cover subjects such as communication and presentations and awareness of digital technology during your study time in college. 

To pass you must achieve all of the required units and provide evidence of your competence for each learning outcome. Evidence can be provided through products of work, observations, witness statements, simulation and Q&A's. You will be assessed both at work and in college, and you will also be assigned to a Training and Assessment Facilitator (FAT) to help you plan a personal learning and assessment journey.
