BSc Television and Broadcasting becomes the second specialist course from CCI to achieve Creative Skillset Accreditation.
The course’s excellent industry links, commitment to live briefs with genuine clients, and strong career development for graduates were all praised by Creative Skillset, who have confirmed accreditation for six years.
Creative Skillset was founded in 1992 and its purpose is to rigorously scrutinise specialist courses offering graduate careers in the creative industries. They are one of a few accrediting bodies that determine the worth from a particular course curriculum via an intensive process that includes many months of documenting evidence, and some very demanding presentations from students and the course team.
Course leader Charlie Watts said, “A lot of staff and students contributed to this success and I would personally like to thank each and everyone of you. So a huge thanks to the TVB team, the TVFP team, to both Catherine Harper and Steve Hand, and to associated CCI and CT staff for your contributions. It was a huge undertaking that lasted a very long 10 months, and I’m relieved that it has resulted in success!”
Essentially Creative Skillset Accreditation is an industry approved tick-in-a-box that states to all that a particular course is doing everything in its power to offer students the correct curriculum to help them achieve their career choices. Charlie told us, “It’s a very big deal for all, and we really feel like we have earned the tick.”
