This is the main part of the qualification and is organised into 7 units encompassing a wide range of creative and media disciplines. The work you do here is directly related to the knowledge and skills required by the creative and media industries and is driven by creating a new performance production inspired by the team at Glyndebourne. It will involve a lot of practical work with you being required to take on a range of roles and responsibilities; and also being able to show your research, planning, monitoring and evaluating skills. The assessment for subjects will be mostly project driven with some external assessment. 2.
