Media BTEC Level 3 at Aquinas College

Course description

The BTEC in Creative Media Production offers students a practical alternative to the theory based A-level media course by focusing on industry standard production skills within television and film.

Students on the course will have the opportunity to plan, develop and produce a range of audio-visual products such as television adverts, music videos and short films.

Course content

The first year of the creative media production course focuses on developing students’ analytical and practical skills with a range of assignments and assessments. The beginning of the year will be focused on training students to use industry standard equipment and software. We have a full Apple Mac suite and class sets of digital SLR cameras available for students to use.

The second year of the creative media course requires students to apply the knowledge and skills gained in the first year to real-world scenarios. Students will work with clients outside of college to produce a range of media products.

Entry requirements

Grade 4 in both GCSE English Language and Maths + 4 grade Cs in other subjects (which could include English Literature grade 4) 

Future opportunities

Students are able to progress onto university study in media-related disciplines or onto higher apprenticeships with local media companies.

Further information

Students will have the opportunity to attend local film festivals, cinema trips and the departmental annual trip to New York.
