Music and Media Group and Courses - Dover (bemix - formerly Skillnet Group)

Our music and media groups work alongside people to explore and develop skills in music (song writing, performance, learning an instrument, DJ skills, music production) and media (film making, digital photography, graphic design, using the internet, making radio shows).

People with learning difficulties/disabilities and/or autism can choose to work towards gaining an accredited qualification with Gateway Qualifications.  

The 'Progression into Music Skills' and 'Progression into Media Arts' qualification can be taken at either Entry Level 3, Level 1 or Level 2 as an award (short course) or certificate (longer course).

People build their own courses from a selection of units depending on what they would like to learn. This can include:

  • Learning instruments such as guitar, bass, drums, vocals, keyboards 
  • Song writing
  • Composing music
  • DJ skills
  • Recording
  • Music technology
  • Playing in a band
  • Music theory
  • Film making
  • Digital Photography
  • Using the Internet
  • Radio Production
  • Creative Writing
  • Graphic Design 

There is also a selection of “core units” which cover key skills such as working in a team and developing employment related skills.


Music and Media Courses are run by bemix - formerly Skillnet Group.

This project runs within the Day Opportunities framework, Lot 2, Promoting Independence
