Because of the intensity of this course, you need to be prepared to undertake a high proportion of self-study, as well as organising to work with your production teams outside of course hours. It would be an advantage to have access to an Apple Macintosh computer outside of college time.
This is a practical, work-related course in which you learn by completing projects based on realistic workplace situations and develop the skills and experience of graphics, communication, hardware and web design. It is equivalent to two A-Levels allowing progression into employment or entrance into higher education.
The course is structured into 6 x 6 weekly blocks. You will be taught through demonstration and hands-on workshops, plus handouts/interactive materials where appropriate.
