This exciting course will allow you to develop your creative production skills. You will learn how to produce interactive media, live TV, sound, video and digital animations through project-based work. You will have access to excellent industry-standard resources including professional HD cameras, edit suites, a radio studio, television studio, recording studios and animation software.

All aged 16-18 students have the benefit of following the ‘Futures’ programme which is an innovative approach to curriculum design that ensures our students not only graduate with a high quality vocational qualification but also develop the key transferable skills that employers and higher education institutions demand. Skills such as communication, teamwork, leadership, decision-making and enterprise skills are integrated and promoted. In addition, Futures students benefit from work experience, core tutorials, enrichment and skills development and/or qualifications in English and maths.

The course includes units such as audio production, games production and moving image production and you will study these through industry-linked projects, working to a brief. You will also explore the media industries and learn to understand the media audiences you are making the products for.

The course is coursework based and the year will conclude with a Final Major Project in which you will choose and manage the project that you work on through a games, music or media pathway, utilising the range of skills that you have developed over the course. By the end of this course you will have developed a broad portfolio of creative work that will help you to progress.
