TECHNICAL BASED LEARNING
The project aimed to give second year vocational students training for careers in the media a chance to improve their digital media skills and to apply these practically within a model marketing project. It aimed to provide a contrast to their school environment where teaching is theory led and class sizes are often too big for small group working and practical assignments.
The project also aimed to help students learn important skills like collaboration, problem solving and meeting deadlines in order to build confidence and enhance future employment prospects.
The project took place at the Tellus specialist training centre and included visits from professional media experts and a filming field-trip.
