At The BRIT School we are passionate about all things media. The quality of British film, TV and radio production is highly regarded worldwide and they make a key contribution to the UK economy whilst at the same time adding to this country’s cultural richness. Within these industries there is a wide range of potential careers, from the creative, to the technical, and potential management roles. The skills that you will learn on our courses will prepare you for your first steps in an exciting and vibrant sector.
You will study for a BTEC Level 2 Tech Award in Creative Media Production, equivalent to GCSE 9-4. The core area of study will be in filmmaking, with some additional work in radio and photography
