Summary

Our media department provides learners with opportunities to gain professional skills, using industry-standard equipment, taught by industry experts.

This practical course has three phases. To start with, you will learn a set of key media skills, including editing with Photoshop and Premiere and handling a range of DSLRs and video cameras. Next, you will work as part of a team to create a media project in response to a brief. Finally, you will get the chance to design and create your own media product, which could be anything from a short film to a photo gallery or website.

The media department has four Mac Bay media suites, a TV studio and edit suites, and is well equipped with professional recording and photography resources.

What do I need to join?

Level 1 or 2 qualification, Introductory Certificate in a related subject, 4 GCSEs at grade 4 (D), or related work experience for older students.

How will I know how I am doing?

Coursework is set with clear, regular feedback and structured, achievable targets. Regular individual tutorials and group discussions will also be held throughout the course.

Maths & English

A key requirement for obtaining many jobs is to achieve a good standard of English and maths. Therefore, learners that do not yet have a GCSE grade 4 (C) in these subjects will be enrolled on either a GCSE or functional skills course alongside their main study programme.

Employability

The media and leisure industry is one of the few areas in the jobs market that has sustained levels of employment and has even shown areas of growth in the present economic climate. Former students have ended up working in a variety of jobs and sectors, including as journalists, directors of photography and producers within broadcast TV, sports media and film production.

Work Experience

Students will participate in video shoots and other production opportunities, both within the College and on location, including at our extensive range of performing arts shows, sporting matches and competitions.

What can I do next?

Students who complete the course will then qualify for Level 3 study, such as a Level 3 diploma or an A-level programme. Most learners who successfully complete the qualification progress onto one of our Level 3 Media Diplomas in Film & Television, Animation & Visual Effects, Sports Journalism, Photography or Computer Games Design.

What are my career options?

Students can progress onto higher-level courses that could lead into careers in broadcasting, sound production, publishing or film, video or TV production. Communication, confidence, creative thinking and teamwork are all skills developed on the course that are transferable to a broad range of employment opportunities.
