Media case study: Creation Theatre

If you teach Media, we’ve created a free case study resource that you’ll love! Your students will be able to explore the creative and media world through a prestigious Oxford-based theatre company.

Suitable for contributing research activities for various units in the AQA, Edexcel and OCR specifications for the Creative & Media Diploma, the case study provides a great insight into the dramatic world through:

• a Q&A document about the roles and responsibilities of the marketing and sales manager
• a diary outlining a typical day for a marketing and sales manager of a theatre company.

Creative & Media resources: A Festival

The Edexcel specifications for the Creative & Media Diploma require students to understand the nature of festivals in the creative and media industries.

We’ve created a free PowerPoint presentation on this topic for you to download from our website.

A case study of the Oxfordshire-based TRUCK festival provides your students with real-life examples; the CV of the festival’s promoter helps students understand how to get into the role; and an animation about running your own festival breaks the stages into easy-to-understand chunks.
