Whether you want to be in front of the camera or behind it, taking photographs or writing scripts, take your first steps with one of our media courses. We have something for everyone and our industry experienced staff teach learners on professional software in our media lab that is full of the latest iMacs using Adobe CC suites, Final Cut Pro and more to develop key skills. There's hands-on training and practical work experience right on your doorstep and working on projects for Estuary Student TV will give you the skills employers are looking for. On top of this, we have strong links with top names in the industry and are currently an education partner for the BBC. The course is very practical. Each week you will learn how to produce media products such as videos, photographs, magazines, games design and web pages. You will also learn about media products and the media industry. There will be projects in all these areas and successful students can specialise further at level 3.
When you do a vocational qualification you will learn in a workshop, salon or studio as appropriate for your subject and you will usually be assessed through practical assessments, projects, assignments and oral and written questions. There may be exams in some subjects and your tutor will prepare you for these.
Entry requirements for our courses depend on the specific requirements of each Programme of Study and an individual’s previous experience, which will all be discussed during the interview process.
