Or Application Form & Reference Form to be returned to Student Services

BTECs are vocationally related qualifications, where learners develop knowledge and understanding by applying their learning and skills in a work-related context. Your course will include core, mandatory and specialist units where you will learn about media sectors and audiences and get the chance to plan, shoot and edit several practical media production projects. Due to the way the industry and technology is changing, it is vital that students have skills and knowledge in both still and moving image - this level 2 course can now offer those foundation skills that you can then expand on when they move onto a level 3 course. You will study the techniques found both in Media and Photography, learning how to apply those skills into both areas. During the course, you will have the opportunity to major in either Photography or Media, where you will choose a pathway and be taught subject specific skills on your chosen vocation. This is a well rounded course that challenges students and allows them to find an area within the Media or Photography industry that they would like to pursue in the future.
