Aims of the Department:
Like all subjects at SSA, Media is taught with an individualised, student-centred way. We aim to teach students how to read the media around them and to provide them the skills and language to make their own.


The course we offer is a BTEC Level 2 First Award in Creative Digital Media Production. This offers a wide scope of individual and group- based project learning which engages students and leads to high quality outcomes. A large part of the course focuses on moving-image media and games. This course is 3/4 internally assessed and features one 1-hour final exam. 



This course is internally assessed and features no final exam.
