Assessment Methods

  • Portfolio of Evidence

  • Why choose this qualification?

    These Entry 3 to Level 1 qualifications are intended to provide learners with a broad introduction to working in the Creative Industries sector equipping learners with underpinning knowledge and skills specific to the sector alongside a range of transferable employability skills.  The qualifications contain a significant proportion of knowledge and understanding together with some skills development. Where skills are assessed these will, in the main, be assessed through simulated activities and scenarios, unless it is a type of activity that can realistically be carried out by the learners providing there is risk assessment built in, for example expedition skills.

    They are designed to support progression to further learning and ultimately to work in creative industries or other related creative industries, including apprenticeships.

    The Skills for Creative Industries qualifications form part of a suite of ‘Skills for…’ qualifications that cover a number of sectors.  The employability skills units are common across the suite, enabling easy transfer of credits between qualifications and supporting opportunities for cross-faculty working.

    The qualifications have been developed with the support of the FE sector.  They have been designed to be consistent with the principles for study programmes for 16-19 year olds but are also relevant, particularly in the case of the smaller qualifications, for adults including the unemployed. These qualifications are also suitable for pre-16 learners.

    Rules of Combination

    Learners must complete 42 credits, including 6 credits from Group M (Mandatory), 30 credits from Group O1 (Optional Units: Creative Media) and 6 further credits from either Group O1 or Group O2 (Optional - Employability Skills, English or Maths). Learners cannot include more than one unit with the same or similar title.

    For full details see list of barred units within the published qualification specification.
