BTEC Level 1 Unit 10

Unit 10: Developing Audio


Unit reference number: T/601/2174

QCF level: 1

Credit value: 4

Guided learning hours: 40

Unit aim

The aim of this unit is to give learners basic knowledge of different audio products,

sound recording techniques and technology and the skills to enable them to produce

an audio product.

Unit introduction

The term ‘audio production’ encompasses a wide variety of production activity,

whether recording a local band’s demo tape, community radio, podcasting or

programmes on national radio.

Learners should develop a basic understanding of sound recording through

investigation and experimentation. While learners will develop a basic understanding

of various styles, techniques and technologies, they will also gain a basic

understanding of broadcast audio production. In creating their own audio product

learners will develop basic skills in sound recording, editing and mixing.

 BTEC Level 1 Unit 11

Unit 11: Audio and Video Editing

Unit reference number: A/505/1502

QCF level: 1

Credit value: 4

Guided learning hours: 40

Unit aim

The aim of this unit is to introduce learners to the knowledge and skills needed for

editing and can be applied to audio/visual, and audio or visual-based production


Unit introduction

Editing techniques can be applied to audio or visual production work. Learners will

develop their knowledge of when and why editing is carried out and will generate

ideas for editing by collecting information and planning to edit materials. Learners

will then follow their plan to edit the materials and will review their work by collecting

feedback and reviewing aspects that went well and aspects that could be improved.

Much professional editing is now undertaken using digital systems and it is likely that

the production work for this unit will take place using digital systems. However,

learners should have an awareness of both traditional and digital techniques and this

unit does not preclude the use of traditional editing equipment for production work.
