BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Esports
What you will learn
4 GCSEs at 4 or above including English or Maths
What you need to know before you enrol
You do not need to have prior knowledge of - or experience in - Esports as a subject prior to applying, we will teach you what you need to know! If you have not achieved a grade 4 in both English and Maths at GCSE, you will need to study these qualifications alongside your Esports course here at Morley College. You need to be aware that this is a fast-moving, proactive and forward-thinking course placing you at the centre of contemporary media industry education, as such, you will be expected to put time in outside of course hours to achieve a high standard of work.
What you need
You need a positive, can-do attitude with plenty of enthusiasm for the creative industries. You will be eager to learn, bursting with potential and ready to challenge your understanding of the world in which we live. Collaboration will be necessary as a part of this program, so you will be capable of playing a key role in group work. You will need access to a computer at home, and ideally a form of gaming console (this can include PC).
Class format and activities
As this is an online plus course, the practical aspects of the different units will be delivered at the Chelsea Centre for the Creative Industries whilst adhering to social distancing guidelines. Theoretical content, as well as group and individual tutorials will be delivered online using Microsoft Teams. All course materials (project briefs, background notes, handouts, YouTube videos, links to content etc.) will be available online and accessible via our Virtual Learning Environment, Google Classroom. Your progress towards achieving the learning outcomes will be reviewed regularly. Throughout the course you will be greatly encouraged and entirely supported to reach your full potential with constructive feedback provided by your tutor. At the end of your studies you will have the opportunity to exhibit a body of your creative work at an exhibition. Assessment Methods: Achievement on the course will be measured by completion of set assignment briefs, both internally and externally verified. Your progress towards achieving the learning outcomes will be reviewed throughout the course. At the start of the program you will have the opportunity to discuss your personal and professional ambitions and goals with your tutor and set your own targets linked to your intended pathway in the future. You will be suitably prepared for assignment briefs in the form of practical and theoretical sessions. At the end of each year you will gain the opportunity to create a substantial practical piece of work as part of a team, or individually, that will contribute to your unit outcomes and individual grading profile.
