Media

National 3

Course structure This Course is made up of two mandatory Units. The two Units, taken together, include the skills of analysing and creating media content. This Course provides the opportunity to integrate these skills, as creation and analysis are inextricably linked. Each Unit also offers opportunities for learners to focus on particular skills. Units are statements of standards for assessment and not programmes of learning and teaching. They can be delivered in a number of ways.

Creating Media Content (National 3)
The purpose of this Unit is to develop the skills to plan and create simple media content, and to show awareness of production processes. This Unit provides learners with the opportunity to develop basic knowledge of the key aspects of media literacy central to creating simple media content.

All elements of the course are internally assessed.
