From July 2019, School of Rock and Media started a pilot shceme to run Certa Accredited Qualifications in Audio and Sound Production, Personal Development and DJing Skills. In the first 9 month, more than 15 students have graudated with new qualifications. This number is growing, as we develop more subjects, and increase our prospectus.
Credits and Levels
All units (or modules) of accreditation have a level and credit value.
The level shows the complexity of the learning and the level of demand on learners.
One credit is equal to approximately 10 hours of learning and this is equal to the time the average learner would take to complete the unit.
Learners achieve credits by successfully completing individual units, or units combined to form part of a qualification or programme of learning.
