    Attending a launch event for this later but have got the slides if anyone is interested.

    Main changes:

    Unit 1: Media Representation (120 GLH) - Examination unit.

    Then depending on if you're doing the Extended certificate, foundation diploma or extended diploma it will impact the units.

    Mandatory units - set and assessed externally (1 on EC, and FD, 3 on ED). Then option units - the units are largely similar to what currently exists.

    The Extended Diploma seems to have been hit the most, 7 mandatory units and 6 option units - removed quite a lot of the freedom from the course.

    Hopefully the units set externally will be creative projects, they are named as:

    Digital Media Skills (120GLH)
    Specialist subject investigation (120 GLH)
    Responding to a commission (120 GLH)

    ..not a fun time to be an SV!
