Moving Image Arts
Northern Ireland Screen worked in partnership with the Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA) and Northern Ireland’s three Creative Learning Centres on the introduction of Moving Image Arts (MIA), the first A-Level in the UK in digital film-making.
The qualification, which involves practical film-making and the first online exam at this level in the UK, has been a resounding success.
The qualification has now been introduced as a GCSE. This fits with Northern Ireland’s new curriculum development plans where learners at age 14 will be entitled to a choice of 24 courses, at least one third of which must be vocational or applied.
