This exciting one-year programme offers a broad introduction to the media industry and allows learners to develop the key skills, knowledge and attributes required to progress further. The programme is very practical in nature, with the opportunity to produce a range of media products, such as: making a short film with drama students, designing characters for a computer game and creating your own animation.
How will I know how I am doing?
A variety of assessment methods will be used to measure your progress from your start point and against your expected outcomes and target grade. These may include practical tasks and assessments, written assignments, performance reviews, presentations and discussions. Progress will be discussed with your tutor and other delivery staff on the programme.
What do I need to join?
As well as having a keen interest in the subject area, learners will need to possess GCSEs at grade 1 or 2 in both English and Maths. Learners will need to be committed, punctual and demonstrate an enthusiasm for learning and taking on new ideas and skills.
Maths & English
A key requirement for future progression and employment is a good understanding and application of knowledge and skills in both English and maths. Learners who are enrolled on this course will also, as part of their overall programme of study, be enrolled on either Functional Skills or GCSE programmes in English and Maths in order to progress towards gaining GCSE grade 4 in both subjects.
We aim to provide you with the skills required to be able to progress into further study and training or employment upon completion of your programme of study. Key attributes required by employers are that individuals be enthusiastic, motivated, presentable (in some instances in company uniform), organised, articulate, able to think 'outside the box', business-like and enterprising, and that they have a 'can-do' attitude. We work on all these areas throughout the duration of your programme of study, and your tutor(s) will provide feedback on progress made, as well as areas for development.
What can I do next?
Learners who successfully complete the course will be eligible for progression onto a Level 2 programme of study, or an apprenticeship in a related discipline.
