Level 6 is about consolidating your creative practice (self and the world)
The Diploma in Creativity (Level 6) focuses on how 'self' fits in the community. While developing your own research and practice skills for creativity, you will be participating in exhibitions and exploring entrepreneurial opportunities in your community. It is about engaging with the needs of others as you develop your confidence. Your ability to manage your own affairs as an individual practitioner will be supported by a wide range of in-depth and practical competencies.
The aim of the Level 6 programme is to increase understanding of creative process and practice. You will work from your core drivers, in your areas of interest, to develop transferable and transportable skills in creativity which may be applied effectively to a wide range of industry roles and/or higher-level tertiary study.
