Teaching the Creative Media Diploma has been extremely challenging. We have two teachers the lead teacher and myself delivering the core learning, other members of staff are teaching the functional skills and the additional specialist learning.
I previously wrote learners were going to undergo an interim assessment. From the evidence they had generated I am pleased with their progress. It took about 1 1/2 hours to mark 12 files using a grid system that showed their performance against the learning objectives designed by myself.

Last week we had students writing letters promoting the performance; helping with dressing the stage; undertaking training using the lighting board; creating short films about what everyone has done and elements of particular skillsets and using CS3 Photoshop to make promotional materials promoting Oliver!
I’m so pleased its half term!
