Through the production of media work learners are able to demonstrate their understanding of key concepts such as: media language; representation; audience; and production skills and processes, as well as express their creativity and originality

This course aims to prepare learners for a future in a digital and interconnected world by providing the skills, knowledge and understandings to tell their own stories and interpret others’ stories. Learners experience the languages of media communication and how a story is constructed using representations. Learners are encouraged to explore, experiment and interpret their world, reflecting and analysing contemporary life, while understanding that this is done under social, cultural and institutional constraints. Learners, as users and creators of media products, consider the important role of audiences and their context.
