Skillset Media Academies – Pick the Tick

Do you know who Skillset are? They are the Sector Skills Council (SSC) for the media and publishing industry. Recently they launched their Pick the Tick campaign.

The tick is a “kitemark of quality”, so when you’re searching for a media course you know that course or education provider has been given approval through a rigorous assessment to get the badge.

East Coast Media is a Skillset Media Academy. There are 23 in the UK and four in the North of England.  So by selecting East Coast Media when searching for a media course, shows that you will get an experience like no other.

“Employers don’t want to have to provide new employees with basic skills and knowledge that they should already have learnt, and they haven’t got time to sift through hundreds of mediocre applicants to find the one who can hit the ground running. They’ll be looking at a simple indicator of the best graduates.” http://courses.skillset.org/pick_the_tick

ECM is part of the Yorkshire and Humber Skillset Media Academy.
