What would you feel would be a better pathway for people wanting to work in the media, rather than A Level's and degrees? Something like an apprenticeship do you think?
What's the point in sitting at school for an extra two years doing those kind of subjects, which require a much more hands-on approach?

In my opinion, those subjects shouldn't exist at school. There should be opportunities for post-GCSE students to go and take an external course in those subjects. I don't see how learning it at school or at a sixth firm college can particularly help? Perhaps you can enlighten me as someone who has taken one of these A Level courses.
