Free me­dia win­ter school

Zululand Observer - Monday - - ZO EDUCATION - Lau­rie Smith

TOY­OTA can­not sell a car, nor can McDon­alds sell a burger with­out the sup­port of the cre­ative me­dia sec­tor.

And this study path is an ex­cit­ing prospect for learn­ers who are con­sid­er­ing their fu­ture ca­reer paths.

This sec­tor can ex­ist as a stand alone in­dus­try in the form of the en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try, as well as the piv­otal point of mar­ket­ing and pro­mo­tion of goods and ser­vices.

There are many fields within this sec­tor that have been iden­ti­fied by The Sec­tor of Education and Train­ing Au­thor­ity for Me­dia and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions as emerg­ing skills, in­clud­ing: app de­vel­op­ment in­ter­ac­tive me­dia dig­i­tal mar­ket­ing an­i­ma­tion script writ­ing film mak­ing mu­sic pro­duc­tion broad­cast en­gi­neer­ing fash­ion de­sign per­form­ing arts.

In­valu­able in­sight

The Cre­ative Arts Col­lege in Richards Bay has ar­ranged a free work­shop at which Grade 11 and 12 learn­ers can gain in­sight into these sec­tors.

They will have the op­por­tu­nity to learn and un­der­stand the work­ings and op­er­a­tions in these fields and will ap­ply them­selves in prac­ti­cal sce­nar­ios, in­ter­act­ing with ac­tual in­dus­try play­ers who will share their first-hand ex­pe­ri­ences.

This is an in­valu­able op­por­tu­nity that sup­ports the learner in the big de­ci­sion of an ideal ca­reer path.

The work­shop is pre­sented as a win­ter school, which runs on 3 and 4 July from 9am to 3pm.

There is no cost in­volved, but book­ing is es­sen­tial and can be done by con­tact­ing 081 5891088 via What­sApp.
