BTEC Level 3 National Extended Certificate in Digital Production
The qualification provides a coherent introduction to the study of creative digital media production at this level.
Learners develop an understanding of the media industry through analysing media representations and pitching and producing media projects, providing a coherent and synergistic link between theory and application (media production).
Over the full two-year course students can chose to then specialise in either print media production (graphic design specific), or website design. These are known as ‘Specialist Optional Units’ (chosen in year 2 of the course).
It is designed for post-16 learners who aim to progress to higher education and ultimately to employment, possibly in the media industries.
Assessment is predominantly through internally set tasks (coursework-based) combined with a set number of externally assessed components in the summer of each year.
