Level 5 Diploma in Creativity pie chart and cpsProgramme Requirements

Level 5 is about developing and challenging your creative practice (self and other)

The Diploma in Creativity (Level 5) moves from the focus on self to sharing with others, (understanding that creativity is a mixture of ‘individual’ and ‘group’ interactions). We support and nurture each other in many different ways. You will learn marketing and promotional skills, blend your strengths with the needs of others, and establish win-win engagements.

Creativity challenges conventions and this allows you to discover what differences you could make to your own world, right now, and how these changes might affect others. These ideas may relate to culture, health, environment, science, society, economics, politics or any other field of interest to you.

The goal of the level 5 programme is to acquire a range of skills in creativity, including the ability to expand original ideas in a range of conventions and media/material to provide an understanding of creative process and practice. You will focus on your areas of interest and by working with your core drivers expand transferable and transportable skills in creativity.
