Creative Media Production


Media is a mixture of creative and academic opportunities.  You can study how and why directors create meaning in their various texts and then apply this knowledge when creating your own products. 

BTEC Media – using industry based software and focussing on independent learning, this vocationally based course allows students to develop practical tasks. This course gives you access to a wide variety of media texts to study and the tools to produce your own. We have access to state of the art recording and editing equipment and a fully-functional TV studio.

Most students already know about Media so we are building on this knowledge and giving you the skills to make what you know look professional. You can gain qualifications watching TV and movies and reading magazines!

BTEC Media has a lively and bubbly atmosphere. The work is interesting and the teachers are amazing! We discovered the inner workings of Adobe Suite and I tried my hand at lots of different things – games design, radio adverts, print magazine design and even my own music video. I feel totally prepared for my Digital Media course at Salford – Accrington Academy Sixth Form set me on the way! Sam Briggs
