Media Studies

Media Studies is a popular subject choice at Emerson Park Academy, enjoying high standards of both academic and practical success within the school.

We are currently running the new 2022 BTEC Tech Award in Creative Media Production, a course that builds on previous successes and meets the needs of future learners with a range of different progress needs.

The new BTEC Technical Awards are designed to provide specialist work-related and theoretical qualifications in a range of subjects. They can give learners the knowledge, understanding and skills that they need to prepare for both employment and for progression into further education. This BTEC Technical Award applies academic, theoretical and practical skills to the real world of the creative media industries and is the ideal option for anyone who wishes to go on to study media-based specialisms at key stage 5 (A-Level, BTEC higher) or pursue a career in this field.
