The CCP offers a Certificate IV in Photography and Photo Imaging, and a Diploma of Photography an Photo Imaging. Students are also able to take individual courses for personal development without completing the entire qualification if they desire.
High school students are also able to participate in these courses and qualifications through the CCP VET (Vocational Education and Training) in SACE programme.
CCP classes run over four terms per year, rather than two semesters. Core subjects and a range of electives are run every term. We take rolling admissions, meaning that students can begin or continue thier studies in any of these four terms. All courses are held in person at our campus just outside the Adelaide CBD.
It is possible to study as little as one subject per term; three subjects per term is considered full-time and students can change their study load each term if necessary. All this allows our students to study in a very flexible way, at each student’s own pace.
CCP enforces a three-year time limit on completing each qualification. This time frame allows for a very flexible schedule—Certificate IV and Diploma students can enrol in as little as one subject per term, and still take one term off per year if needed. For academic tracking reasons we encourage students to undertake at least one subject per term, during consecutive terms.
The Diploma and Certificate IV are nationally recognised awards. The nationally recognised competencies in these awards are transferable between any other organisations which offer the same competency-based units, such as TAFE.
Any applicants are welcome to audit any individual subject offered by the CCP without the award for:
- Personal interest
- In-service education
- Portfolio development
In this case, an assessment will not be required, however if a student chooses to be assessed, then a Statement of Attainment will be issued upon successful completion of the subject.
