T Level inMedia, Broadcast, and Production – Creative Media Technician

T Levels are a new, two-year qualification designed with employers to give you a head start towards the future you want. They follow GCSEs and are equivalent to three A Levels. T Levels offer an alternative to A levels, and apprenticeship or other post 16 courses and ensure that you gain the knowledge and skills you need to move into skilled work, an apprenticeship or further study.

The Media sector is strong internationally, nationally, and locally. Over 5,000 people work within Creative and Digital Media in Leicestershire and that number grows every year. Media content is consumed by nearly everyone on the planet and the need for people to create, capture, and edit that content is constantly rising.

The Media, Broadcast, and Production T Level will give you the skills and knowledge needed to enter the creative media workforce. You’ll learn the latest techniques and skills to plan, prepare, capture, finalise, then publish media assets. These skills will allow you to fit in with the smallest media companies to the largest big screen productions.
