NEW - Cognitiv Endorsed Course

Wakefield College Launch New Cognitiv Endorsed Course

After months of planning we are proud to see the official launch of the Level 3 Creative and Digital Industries Diploma – a Cognitiv endorsed course that will be delivered by Wakefield College.


Launching in September 2015 the new course, which was developed as a result of a partnership between Wakefield College and Cognitiv, will prepare school leavers for a career in the creative, digital and IT (CDIT) sector.

Assistant Principal at Wakefield College, Ian Wainwright, said: “We are delighted to be launching this exciting course for the young people in the District. The College is working closely with local employers to ensure our courses prepare students for successful careers in a range of different sectors. The diploma further enhances our relationship with the region’s creative industries and will ultimately benefit learners and the local economy.”

Cognitiv chair, Dan Conboy said: "The new course will provide students with a valuable insight into the Creative Digital and IT sectors as it has been developed in conjunction with employers in the District. The partnership between Wakefield College and Cognitiv will provide students with excellent opportunities to benefit from an up-to-date curriculum in a fast-changing sector, as well as direct links with employers to enhance their employability.

“This exciting new course is a striking example of an employer-driven qualification and is one step closer to helping Cognitiv to realise its vision; to support the District in becoming an area of excellence for creative digital and IT.

“Alongside our members we recognise that skills shortage is one of the many issues facing the CDIT sector and believe that courses such as this will help us to address this important issue."

The course will run from September 2015, and is now open to applications from school-leavers who will achieve at least 5 GCSEs grade A*- C including English Language and Maths. Tutors will cover a host of exciting topics including graphic design, web development, digital marketing and business studies.
