Year 9 BTEC Media Group visit to Media City/Salford University
On the 27th June, the new year 9 option group had a fantastic day out visiting Salford University at Media City. They worked in two groups to research, produce and present either a radio or TV news programme.
The girls worked really hard to write and research before rehearsing and presenting in the TV and radio studios. They were given the chance to use industry standard equipment throughout the day in order to make their final news bulletins. They were then given a short tour of the area. This included seeing where a variety of TV and radio programmes such as ‘Match of the Day’ and ‘Granada News’ are produced. It was wonderful to see so many of the students enthusiastic about career possibilities in the media sector and many asked some great questions to gain a better insight into university courses that they could apply for.
