Screen School programme receives industry accreditation
LJMU’s BA (Hons) Media Production programme has been awarded the Creative Skillset Tick, the industry quality mark, following a rigorous assessment process by experts working in the creative industries.
The Creative Skillset Tick raises the profile of the accredited training in an increasingly competitive HE, FE and employment market and is awarded to practice-based courses which best prepare students for a career in the industry.
In order to achieve the accreditation, LJMU tutors were required to complete a lengthy process to prove that students are receiving realistic skills training and they also needed to provide details about their learning outcomes on every module of the programme.
The Creative Skillset Tick is the latest accreditation received by Liverpool Screen School. In 2007 the Screen School was the first higher education provider in the North West to receive Skillset Media Academy status and is still one of only 23 Media Academies in the country.
Liverpool Screen School also enjoys strong relationships with a range of industry partners including ITV and BBC.
Dr Rachel McLean, Director of Liverpool Screen School, commented: “We are delighted to receive the Creative Skillset Tick for Media Production. It is an invaluable signpost for potential students, apprentices and employers to indicate that the programme provides the most up-to-date and relevant industry training and education. Employers are assured that students graduating from Creative Skillset Tick accredited courses have the levels of knowledge and skills they need and can perform to the standard they expect and require.”
