Pre-order Items

Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario – the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5137)
'An excellent, comprehensive and coherent set of resources that are totally focused on the unit and the learner's chances to succeed... All of the resources are well tailored to the level of the learners and all meet the requirements of the unit. The resources are student friendly and clearly explain the tasks... This resource is perfectly pitched to bring learners who have not necessarily engaged with the media at any level before, up to a good standard. It is also very good at making what is potentially a very dull topic of study into something engaging... This resources sticks to the specification perfectly, every single learning outcome and descriptor is matched with a task. I have no doubt that if this resource is followed then students will meet every learning outcome.' – R Crabb, Curriculum Leader for Media Studies & Independent Reviewer
'Particularly like the in depth glossary - would be useful across levels and specs... The inclusion of information sheets builds a nice revision booklet for students to refer back to... it matches the new specification well, providing a variety of ways activities can be conducted.'– E Richardson, Media Tutor & Independent Reviewer
'In a word - WOW! This is an exhaustive introduction to key media concepts for the new and more demanding mandatory BTEC unit... I loved the range of activities and how these appealed to different learning styles - kinaesthetic, auditory and tactile, with a great use of card sorts and 'pop quizzes'. Quite complex concepts were introduced to learners, then revisited until students would be learning at a high level. I particularly liked the skilful use of stock photographs to enhance understanding of lighting techniques and camera angles, as well as the section on regulatory bodies. The students would have a really in-depth understanding of the key concepts underpinning digital media production... The layout and graphic style of the work was excellent, with a great use of symbols to illustrate various aspects of the course.'J Stenner, Head of Creative Media & Independent Reviewer
