Creative kids interested in a career in media or the arts will have the chance to get qualified through a new diploma.
The College of North West London has teamed up with Claremont High School in Kenton, Capital City Academy in Willesden and St Gregory's Science College in Kenton, to offer the Creative and Media Diploma for kids aged 14 to 19.
The qualification combines theoretical study with practical experience and covers film, animation, photography, radio, TV, fashion, publishing, interactive media and computer games.
