We offer Media qualifications to enable students to gain skills that will enable study at FE for some, whilst promoting life skills for all to take beyond the classroom. Students consider their own experiences and how they engage with the media industry and the role that it plays in everyday lives. The practical elements of the subject are designed to enable students to demonstrate their theoretical knowledge in a creative way.
OCR GCSE Media Studies begins by introducing students to the first two elements of the theoretical framework: Media Language and Media Representations. This allows students to consider a range of media forms and products whilst engaging with the core knowledge of the course which they will later be required to apply to the close study of media products.
The Cambridge National qualification in Creative iMedia equips students with the wide range of knowledge and skills needed to work in the creative digital media sector. They start at pre-production and develop their skills through practical assignments as they create final multimedia products.
WJEC Entry Pathways in Creative Media and Performance Arts provides students with an accessible and flexible qualification. Students can complete various units at Entry Level, including advertising and print media, to achieve an Award, Certificate or Diploma qualification.
