The qualification consists of two mandatory units (Units 1 & 2) making up 50% of the qualification, and a choice of two (from five) optional units.
Unit 1: Digital Media Sectors and Audiences – Explore the digital media industry and all five key sectors that fall under it (Digital Moving Image, Digital Audio Production, Digital Publishing, Website Production and Digital Games Production). You will understand the range of technological platforms used to distribute media, and how each sector has a common production process.
Unit 2: Planning and Pitching a Digital Media Product – You will use your verbal, written and visual communication skills to enable you to formulate, develop and pitch ideas of a media product that you then plan to produce.
The optional specialist units offered within the qualification build on the core and provide learners with an opportunity to develop a wider understanding and appreciation of any two sectors of the creative digital media sector, depending on their interests and motivation.
