Shift Media is a small enterprise. We view this as a strength. It helps us offer personalised learning that we believe students need in order to develop confidence and contribute positively to their own and their community’s development.
All vocational subjects are NCFE accredited, we offer: Animation, Graphic Design, Photography, Moving Image, ICT and Game Design.
Students who have had contact with employers are more likely to understand the world of work and therefore are better placed to gain employment.
English and Maths
We champion English and maths as important to participating fully and inclusively in all aspects of modern life.
In all aspects of life but in particular employment or education, confidence and self-awareness are important to the development of a strong sense of self and agency.
Our goal is to support students to enter the world of work and so work experience is a key part of the Study Programmes we offer.
Study programmes are a personalised curriculum which delivers a suite of media related vocational training linked to functional skills and GCSE English and Mathematics. In addition we work on employability within personal development.
For students assessed as being at the right level for traineeships are an option. A traineeship is an extended work placement with an individual learning programme linking training to placement activity. This is for students who are fairly clear about where they want to work and who have the work discipline to maintain and extended work placement.
