BTEC HNC Level 4
What will I study?
The outlook for the UK’s screen industries is bright. With considerable investment in UK studios, a vibrant and expanding independent sector, and spending on TV and video forecast for continued growth, the demand for skilled technicians and talent will continue to grow across the film and high-end TV sectors. There is a growing national need for the craft skills which are increasingly technology driven, such as engineering skills for lighting and sound and animation skills. The skills that you learn on the course will equip you for the fresh challenges of an ever-changing job market.
As well as developing a broad knowledge and awareness of key aspects of Creative Media Production, you will study specialist subjects like Film Practices, Film Studies and Editing for Film & Television. You will develop critically important skills in team-working, and using language that enables clear communication of concepts and day-to-day processes across the Film and TV fields. The course aims to provide you with the core skills and behaviours that are universally useful across all Film departments, companies and specialisms.

WHAT STUDENTS SAY
"No one day is ever the same! We are currently doing an advertising campaign and we have to work on every aspect of it, from the script to producing the music. I am surprised at how much equipment the College had to help us film and edit the advert.
The best thing for me as well is that we have the opportunity to sample other courses like music production, even though that isn’t what we are studying. I can’t wait to see our finished product!"
