Creative and Digital Media
Are you interested in designing and digital making, filming and recording and using your imagination? The Creative and Digital Industries are very diverse – ranging from advertising to animation and from fashion to film.
The Creative & Digital Media pathway at UTC Sheffield City Centre will give you a wide range of digital skills and opportunities, so you can pursue your particular interests.
At KS4, your studies will include Pearson BTEC Level 2 Tech Award in Creative Media Production and OCR GCSE Media studies (9-1), alongside other GCSEs.
At KS5, you will study Level 3 OCR Cambridge Technicals in Digital Media alongside A Levels.
You will learn in hi-tech studios and media labs catering for film, photography, animation and web application. State-of-the art facilities also include a sound studio for creating radio features and developing soundtracks exploring music technology and speech projects, as well as a superb art and design space with exhibition lounge.
Throughout each term, you will work on multimedia projects with creative and digital companies. You might be working on a brief for a film trailer set by BAFTA award-winning WARP Films, or attend a master class from representatives of Hallam FM on audience demographics and radio advertising, or you might be set a challenge by directors of international game developers Sumo Digital.
The digital and new media industries in our region are growing at a faster rate than anywhere else in the UK. Overall in the UK over 1.5 million people are employed in creative industries or in creative roles in other industries – so there’s no shortage of opportunity. This pathway at the UTC will give you a wide range of opportunities, including employment in UTC partner companies and access to top quality, relevant degree courses.
