Audio Media Production
OCR Level 2 Cambridge Technical in Media (extended certificate/diploma)
OCR Level 3 Cambridge Technical in Media (introductory diploma/diploma)
Duration of programme
An interest in the media industry is essential plus five GCSEs (or equivalent) at grade C or above; these must include mathematics and English language
What does the course involve?
The course provides the opportunity to explore sound engineering, music production, radio and TV production and online media. You will learn about the institutions behind the media and the role media has in educating us about the world and shaping our opinions towards it.
You will learn through taking part in projects that include recording radio programmes and broadcasting on the College radio station, producing live music sessions for radio broadcast and collaborating with external clients to record and produce high quality recordings.
Every student is expected to undertake some work experience.
The course will develop your analytical, critical and communication skills by analysing a range of media products, helping you to learn new production skills through coursework where you can produce media for radio, film, print and the web. You will also explore the music industry to discover how digital technology is changing the way media products are produced and distributed, and how we can access them.
Students are taught in small groups. Students undertake lesson preparation tasks as well as homework.
Work Based Learning
Students collaborate with other departments and local colleges to plan and produce audio projects.
A portfolio of work will be internally marked and externally verified.
Where will it take me?
For OCR Level 2, students may progress onto OCR Level 3 Audio Media Production or head into employment. After studying OCR Level 3, most people go on to higher education, including degrees in media studies and audio production. Apprenticeships are another possibility.
