CYL alongside Digital Holdings have created a range of media related accredited courses available to students aged 13-25, at 3 difficulty levels, under the Arts Award and AQA accreditation frameworks. All courses and projects are subject to our robust monitoring and evaluation processes and outcomes are evaluated in line with the ‘Every Child Matters’ (ECM) outcomes.

Our courses offer a fun, educational, hands on training and experience for young people, whilst enabling them to gain employable skills within a professional and safe environment. CYL courses have been written and designed by a team of professionals in each field, with input from young people, to ensure our subjects are both popular and interesting over a 12-36 week period.

CYL Times and Duration

Courses are delivered over a 12 week term period, during the academic year or school holidays, with learners attending 1 full day per week per course. Students may wish to study more than one creative skill per term and will receive an initial assessment, in the form of a taster day, to ensure that they enter courses at the appropriate level that best suits their knowledge and experience. Our 12 week courses have 3 levels – beginners, intermediate and advanced, enabling learners to progress onto higher levels of learning.
