Course overview

The Level 3 Extended Diploma in Production Arts is a broad diagnostic course giving you an overview of different perspectives and approaches within production arts or related subjects of study or work. You will develop the ability to research, analyse and evaluate relevant information in order to develop creative solutions to complex problems. You will learn how to use practical methods and skills for creative production for appropriate audiences whilst being able to review their effectiveness for further improvement.
