We have successfully run Communication and Culture and Film Studies A level for many years and
will be offering Media Studies from September 2017 and the Cambridge Technical Media Level 3 in
2018. We anticipate that these will be highly popular and successful subjects and aim to continue
the consistently excellent results this area has achieved, having been consistently within the top
3% (and often first) for value added nationwide for many years.
The college wishes to appoint an experienced media practitioner, someone who is able to
maintain and build on our record of high achievement with an excellent subject knowledge and
enthusiastic commitment to active and effective learning.
There are two full time and two part time members of staff in the department at present and a
technical demonstrator. The department is very supportive, and the successful candidate will need
to be a good team worker who can contribute to planning and developing our resources, and
activities such as curriculum-based visits.
Within the department we are also committed to extra-curricular activities. We run the very
successful college student web publication, The Voice, and a highly rated journalism course,
attracting many prestigious media practitioners to talk to our students.
Our accommodation includes a workroom, equipped with computers, scanners, printers, HD video
cameras, stills cameras, video editing software, Dictaphones, CD and DVD writers, and a classroom
equipped with computers. The department also has a green screen studio. Our Technical
Demonstrator maintains and develops our equipment and teaches and assists students in its use,
but staff are also expected to be able to help and advise students and to develop their knowledge
of relevant programmes, such as Adobe Premier, Photoshop and other software programmes from
the Adobe creative cloud package. As both subjects contain 50% coursework these play an
increasingly important role.
