The core units of the course will develop and extend your critical thinking skills and prepare you to work effectively within the creative arts industry. The course is delivered through a combination of online and face to face learning, as well as ‘on-the-job’ experience throughout the course.
During the course you will learn how to follow a design process, present programs on air, prepare and organise content for broadcast, complete basic sound editing, make presentations and effectively use social media for greater impact.
