Course content

This Cambridge Technicals Media course is part of a new generation of vocational courses aimed at people who enjoy learning in a practical, work-related way. Six units are completed over the course of the year with a strong focus on practical assignments to evidence your understanding. The six units studied are diverse and span a range of media platforms including media analysis, photography, video production and marketing. You will find this course to be both rewarding and challenging as you gain new skills and develop further those that you already have in an atmosphere that reflects the ‘real world’ rather than a classroom. All learning takes place within dedicated Apple Mac rooms where creativity is at the forefront of all that you produce. Assessment on this course is continuous and requires the ability to work to tight deadlines. Expectations are high, but you will receive excellent support from the dedicated team members who deliver the course.
