Since graduating he has been teaching GCSE and A Level Media and English for 10 years, most recently as Head of Department in a North West Sixth Form.

Semiotics is the study of signs and symbols and how they create meaning. It forms the backbone of analysis for many media texts. In this class, students will be guided through an overview of semiotic analysis, how meaning is communicated through signs and signifiers, as well as showing students how to apply it to a media text. This class is aimed at students in Years 10 and 11 who are studying media or for any student interested in Media!
