Self-directed Study
It is expected that on average each learner complete a designated 10-12 hours/week of additional self-directed study.

ACMUSE recognises that everyone has different skills and experiences, so what we look for is potential through a body of creative work that shows conceptual, technical, self-motivation and organisational skills through to realisation and presentation. Further to your portfolio of work in areas of make-up design, we require evidence of the creative process showing a strong sense of colour, shape and form. We are interested to see evidence of your creative artistic ability and potential in the way you think and work.

*Entry pathways:

  1.  Successful completion of ACMUSE CUA41215 Certificate IV in Screen and Media (or equivalent) followed by an interview during which you will display a portfolio of work that meets the course entry requirements.
  2.  Successful completion of ACMUSE CUA51015 Diploma of Screen and Media (or equivalent) followed by an interview during which you will display a portfolio of work that meets the course entry requirements.

Graduates at this level will apply knowledge and skills to demonstrate autonomy, judgement and defined responsibility:

  • in contexts that are subject to change
  • within broad parameters to provide specialist advice and functions

Ongoing assessment based on training package assessment criteria. There are three clustered assessment points: one is term one, a block assessment in term 2 and a final assessment at the end of the year – practical and theoretical examination.

Visual Diary – self-directed study

It is expected that on average each learner complete a designated 8-10 hours/week of additional self-directed study. Part of this is compiling a Visual diary. A visual diary is a daily journal kept by artists, often containing both words and sketches. A diary not only give your trainer a valuable opportunity to explore the creation process of these finished works, but is a useful self-reflection tool.
