The BTEC Level 4 HNC Diploma in Creative Media Production provides a rigorous specialist work-related programme of study that covers the key knowledge, understanding and practical skills required in creative media, with specialist emphasis through a choice of units in 3D, Games, DTP and Video. This is ideal for someone who is part of a new or growing business or for anyone who wishes to study creative media or digital advertising and design in higher education or with a view to employment in the industry.
Entry is by formal application and interview. You need to demonstrate the ability to progress to a level 4 or level 5 qualification. If you have recently been in education, we would like you to have obtained one of the following:
• an Access to Higher Education Diploma awarded by an approved further education institution (such as RACC’s Access to Multimedia);
• related work experience;
• a BTEC Level 3 qualification in Creative Media, Multimedia or IT
• an A-level profile which demonstrates strong performance in a relevant subject or an adequate performance in more than one subject.
This profile is likely to be supported by GCSE grades at A* to C or other related level 3 qualifications.
If you are a mature learner you may present a more varied profile of achievement that might include work experience (paid and/or unpaid) and/or achievement of a range of professional qualifications.
The HNC is a modular course structured as follows:
Contextual Studies for Creative Media Production
Research Techniques for Creative Media Production
Specialist Units include
Development and Techniques of Film and Video Editing
2D Digital Graphics for Computer Games
3D Computer Game Engines
Practical Skills for Computer Game Design
Page Design and Layout for Newspapers and Magazines
We aim to give your coursework a professional and realistic context - if you are employed you will be able to focus your work towards developing your own creative media or design business, or producing work relevant to your current employment.
The course is assessed through a range of methods: written essays or reports, in-class observation, professional conversation, recorded presentations and a creative portfolio. There are deadlines for assignments throughout the course which you will need to meet to continue on the course and gain the qualification.
It is advisable to have access to the software (primarily Adobe CS6) outside the college so that you can work on your assignments in your own time.

How much homework will I need to do outside of class?
There will be set assignments which you will be expected to complete in your own time if necessary to meet the deadlines. Also, the more you practise, the easier you will find it to learn the programs and make progress.
What will happen if I miss a class?
If you miss a class your work will suffer. Learning progresses each week so if you miss classes you may find it hard to keep up. Handouts will be available on Moodle but these cannot replace the value of attending in person.
When will the exams take place?
There are no exams – your work will be continuously assessed.
Is there any tutorial support?
There will be a !;! tutorial system and an Individual Learning Plan will be drawn up to help you manage your time and achieve your goals.
You can enrol online, over the phone or in person at either site
