Heartlands Media Production Course


COMMUNITY Service Volunteers is a national service organisation which is actively involved in training and volunteer work. Our project, the WM Campaigns Unit is part of CSV Media, which works with media professionals to provide training in media skills.

Heartlands News is our community newspaper, which all our trainees write stories for, with the help of a journalism tutor.

The Media Production Course is a 26 week course culminating in a nationally recognised City and Guilds 779 media qualification.

The course is part-time Monday to Friday.

It is divided into five units.

Radio Production, Journalism (working on Heartlands News, our community newspaper), Programme Research Techniques, Desk Top Publishing, Industrial Studies.

As the course is hands- on, we concentrate on practical skills which include: PR Skills, Getting the best out of the people you interview (Radio and Journalism), Using a radio studio desk, DTP skills, Job Search.

Media is a deeply competitive area in which to seek employment, more work is being done by people on short-term contracts or freelancers.

A successful media career demands a lot of commitment and flexibility: the Media Course is a solid introduction to the fundamentals of print and broadcast journalism as well as other media related professions.
