The course is designed to mirror the modern media world and provide a range of skills to enable all learners to progress either directly into the industry or to higher education. Modern media has never been more accessible to so many, and in many cases including social media, has become part of every day life for us all. This course will not only teach you how to create content in the modern media world, but will also teach you how the media uses secret languages to communicate with the public, the techniques the industry using to make people buy products through advertising, how nearly all films have only one of seven narratives, how sound is added in post-production in nearly all media products and how to get the right answer you have to plan the right question! Upon passing year one there is a natural progression to year 2 of this course which covers more areas of the media industry
The course is the first year of a 2 year course. After you pass the first year, you can either stay on for year 2 or change to a different level 3 programme.
