Media Studies GCSE at Richard Huish College
This one year skill development course is for full time, 16 year old students who have taken a full programme of GCSEs over the previous two year period and just missed out on the College minimum entry requirements.
The course develops skills from GCSE study including transferable and employability skills, such as literacy, numeracy, and IT skills, the ability to research information, to do effective presentations and to take part in group discussions. The programme also emphasises the importance of punctuality and attendance.
Alongside this students also complete a Higher Project Qualification.
Support is provided for students who have individual needs. This support is provided in such a way that it ensures students are able to attend all lessons.
You need to have mainly D grades (or grade 3 in English or Mathematics) at GCSE with one or two subjects at a higher grade. If you have not already studied a GSCE course or have achieved E grades in your GCSEs then this resit programme is not suitable for progression.
Following successful completion of the course you will be able to progress on to either a Level 3 programme, (A Levels or BTECs), an apprenticeship/traineeship or to employment.
