Senior School: International BTEC Creative Media

Principal Mr Nicholas Sheehan in the JIS Podcast Studio with Sixth Form students

International BTEC Creative Media offers a unique opportunity to study a range of disciplines in a hands-on fashion. This course promises to develop independent, vocationally aware learners designed around holistic, explorative and integrated creative teaching approaches that are conducive to deep learning and skills development.

Students will engage in the in-depth study of a range of media products and their links to industry and the world of work. It encompasses two modules: Exploring and Developing Creative Media Skills and Advancing Creative Practice.

The course revolves around a series of industry briefs and you will respond in a variety of creative ways. These include filmmaking, sound recording, publishing and web design. Each stage of the course will take into account our context here in Brunei and utilise the many resources at our disposal.

International BTEC Creative Media provides a good foundation for a range of degree courses including Media and Film Studies, Radio Production, Journalism, Marketing, Advertising, Graphic Design, Sound Engineering, Web Design and Business Studies. Due to its vocational nature, it also places you in a good position to find work or work experience in any of the aforementioned fields.
