The R.E.A.L. Deal Study Programmes

R.E.A.L. Education offers some exciting and unique opportunities for post 16 learners.

Courses available for a September 2020 start include a Level 2 certificate/diploma or Level 3 diploma/extended diploma (equal in value to an A-level) in Creative Media. The courses will be delivered in R.E.A.L. Creative Digital’s new media suite – boasting state of the art facilities and experienced tutors.

Creative Digital learners are taught a broad range of skills, processes and techniques needed to be relevant in today’s vibrant and exciting creative digital industry. All courses are founded on work-based experience in the creative digital arts industry with R.E.A.L.’s key, unique approach of industry immersion. The Creative Digital department is fully commercially operational, and all learners interact daily with live clients and are involved in real world content creation (with no mockups or reconstructions!)

Neil Kellow, Lead Teacher of Creative Digital at R.E.A.L. Education said: “Our unique selling point has always been how relevant and advanced our learners’ knowledge and skills are. The engine of our creative force is the incredibly fresh and energetic new way in which our young digital artists see the world of technology and how that fits into today’s market.”

Matt Coulton from Tiger Assemblies, a Creative Digital client, said: “The best decision I have made of recent years was engaging R.E.A.L. Creative Digital to help develop my marketing strategy. My business has boomed as a result of their new and dynamic approach to implementing new technologies in a coherent and beneficial way.”

Ofsted have recently visited the Creative Digital facilities and have praised the operation, stating: “Learners on the R.E.A.L Creative Digital post 16 study programme gained relevant and valuable skills very quickly!”
