Media Studies

BTEC Level 2

Reasons to this course

During this course you will study units which will introduce you to basic techniques of print production, photography, television and film and there is one unit which involves the detailed study of a media product of your own choice.

 

What you will study

More than 50% of your programme will be made up of a vocational specialism leading to either a BTEC Level 2 or OCR Level 2 qualification.

 

How you will be assessed

Most of the vocational Level 2 programmes are assessed through coursework and external assessments. However, some programmes are assessed through coursework alone. For your coursework assessments a variety of methods will be used including written work, oral presentations, posters, group tasks and, where appropriate, practical performance.

 

Progression

The majority of students who complete our Level 2 programme progress to one of our Level 3 courses. To progress to Level 3 you will need to obtain merit grades in your vocational programme and make good progress where appropriate in English and/or Maths and have a good attendance record. Other students progress directly into employment with training or to a range of apprenticeships.
