Moving Image Arts

GCSE, AS-Level, A2        

Whether accessed through cinema, television, DVD or the internet, moving images are a primary source of information and knowledge about the world. Moving image literacy is therefore critical to understanding and interpreting modern society.

The moving image is a key driver of the creative industries. The rapid growth of digital media technologies has made the creative industries increasingly accessible and attractive to young people. The impact of these developments is being felt within the classroom, where students are seeking opportunities to learn technical skills and express themselves creatively.

Our Moving Image Arts qualifications are designed to help students develop their creative and critical abilities through hands-on learning in the craft of moving image arts."
