Level 2 & 3 Pathway

Full Details

Quick Summary

Pick this pathway if you want extra time on practical projects to help you master the skills for today’s digital creative sector – like making apps, websites, graphics and animations.
Links with professional partners will include trips and visits that will be regularly scheduled to offer pupils experience of how ‘real’ industry experts run creative projects with their clients.
Digital Creatives is available as a Level 2 pathway, which students complete in Years 10 and 11, plus a Level 3 pathway, which is undertaken in Year 12 and 13.  So there is a clear progression, right from when students pick their options in Year 9, through to Sixth Form and beyond for digital jobs in the creative sector.
This pathway will tap into the expertise of local companies such as web developers and graphics studios to get an insight into how their digital skills are helping to develop the local economy of the South Lakes.
Plus points for Digital Creatives include opportunities to have extra time and space to use the latest software to make professional products that will make a great portfolio for you!
In terms of future career directions, this pathway keeps all options open for students, whether that’s our Level 3 course in Sixth Form, or a switch to college, or looking further ahead to the growing number of University courses targeting the UK’s fast growing digital economy.
