QCF level: 3
Credit value: 5
Guided learning hours: 40

Unit aim

The aim of this unit is to give learners with the skills and knowledge needed to professionally plan, prepare and apply images in a range of vocational advertising contexts.

Competency unit assessment guidance

This unit should be assessed predominantly in the workplace. Please see Annexe E. Observation, witness testimony, questioning, professional discussion, written and product evidence are all sources of evidence which can be used.

Unit introduction

In this unit learners will initially demonstrate their ability to obtain, insert and combining appropriate imagery. From this, learners will learn to apply a range of technical skills to create, manipulate and edit their chosen imagery for website design, digital publishing, motion graphics or a print-based context.

A key component of this unit will be the learner’s ability to reflect on each significant stage of the planning and image production process. This includes demonstrating, in the final outcome, the ability to identify and respond to any quality issues that impair communication of a message.

Awareness and understanding of copyright law is an important part of this unit as this has significant implications for further stages of the project’s development and production.
