From September 2013 an exciting new A Level qualification will be added to the College's already vast offering of A Levels.
Creative Writing is firmly established as a distinct discipline within higher education, leading to a range of professional careers within the creative and cultural industries.
This specification is designed to introduce you to Creative Writing, separate from, but complementing the study of Arts and English subjects. This A Level allows progression for those of you who have enjoyed opportunities for writing creatively at Key Stage 4. It will prepare you for further study in Creative Writing in higher education and is also suitable for those of you intending to progress to further study in English Literature or English Language, as well as a range of other creative subjects such as Media, Journalism, Film or Art.
The qualification will:
• Provide opportunities to study creative writing as a discipline in its own right, distinct from English studies complement but not overlap English Literature and/or Language study
• Allow aspiring writers to trace a route through school or college on to higher education and into professional practice
• Appeal to a wide range of students, including those studying other disciplines such as science or humanities
