As my department already teaches GCSE Film Studies and Media Studies, some of the teachers and the SLT have approached me to start thinking about next years A-levels to commence in September over the Easter Holidays. Now, taken on-board on what some of you have said, I've taken in consideration of the other members of staff within my department. Furthermore, more than half of the staff are happy to teach these new subjects at A-level because they find that the GCSE students' like the option of these subjects, and think we'll get a great response to the new courses. But on the contrary, a little less of the teachers aren't qualified to teach these subjects, which I worry about when it comes to Teaching Training Days, and Department Meetings, etc. I have no problem with putting these new courses on their timetables next year, but I have hardly no experience myself with media, I have a little, but that's not enough. But, there is a member of staff that has a PGCE in English with Media, and has shown a great impact of their teaching and has shown exceptional progress to the results of Media and Film Studies at GCSE, and I was thinking should I promote this person to Subject Leader of Media and Film; handling both Media, Film studies at GCSE and A-Level? But, returning to the point at hand, has any other teacher come across teaching these courses at A-level and do you find the students who choose the subjects' like it and continue to study it at A2 level?
