The Creative Industry Production study programme is for young people with SEND.
It is unique in the sense that students will be taught how to prepare for the transition to adulthood in a diverse and innovative environment that has Creative Industry Production implicit within the curriculum. Students have access to industry-standard equipment and are taught by professionals with years of industry experience from the education and employment sectors.
This exciting and creative pathway provides students with the opportunity to gain a broad range of valuable skills and knowledge in the creative media sector. It is a practical, hands-on course enabling students to work both independently and in teams reflecting industry practices. Students will explore their own creative potential by using recognised industry creative Adobe software packages and by participating in vocational study whilst developing everyday life skills, social independence, and resilience.
Pathway Key Objectives
The key objectives of the pathway are to provide students with the opportunity to gain experience, skills, and knowledge in the creative media sector. Students will have a valuable understanding of the professional skills required for this fast-moving dynamic industry and participate in practical demonstrations and projects. Students will follow a personalised timetable and work towards achieving their overall programme aspirations to support a positive and meaningful transition.
Key FS Delivery Method
Students will either attend a discrete session with FS tutors, delivered with other students of the same level; 1:1 focus sessions, or they will participate in non-accredited sessions, planned, and supported by the FS tutors but delivered by the class teaching team. The tutors will incorporate employability and vocational elements of the curriculum in their 2021-2022 FS delivery.
Pathway Transition Routes
Transition pathways for each student will be determined individually via an Annual Review reflecting their levels of progress and learning. Progression routes could include paid employment, voluntary employment, further education, Traineeship and Apprenticeship provision, supported or independent living.
