Media Audiences for A-Level and GCSE

Media Audiences for A-Level and GCSE

The two schemes of work share a lot of content, so you don't really want to buy both separately. You could just buy one and then adjust for delivery, however I have made these adjustments to suit my classes already. If you teach both A-Level and GCSE then getting both is a good idea. Main differences are grades to levels, some of the more advanced content has been removed or replaced in the GCSE scheme and some of the tasks have more age appropriate resources. I have also included a digital mark book which can help for tracking of assessments.
