Last term Media A Level and BTEC students enjoyed a trip to Ravensbourne University. Fifteen aspiring media professionals from across the two courses experienced a hands-on, full day workshop run by the university’s “Creative Collaborative Society”.
Rebecca Moon, Head of BTEC Media, explained: “The students were able to try and test the industry standard facilities and kit, as they practically learnt the working parts of a television production. This was then skilfully wrapped up with a live production show, which was shot, acted, and edited live by Collyers students!”
Head of A Level Media, Jonathan Nunns, added: “As ever our students performed as the young professionals, we know they are and made fantastic use of such an invaluable opportunity to develop their skills.”
Crystal Lansdell, who studies A Level Media at Collyer’s said: “This experience was amazing! It helped me get more of an idea about my future, as well as it being great fun. The undergraduate students we worked with were lovely and the equipment they have is top level, I would recommend this trip to others”.
Simonne Gautron, who studies A Level Media, also felt the trip was useful: “It was such a wonderful experience. I enjoyed every minute of it!!”
BTEC Media student Oskar Bolin-Schmitt said: “Ravensbourne gave us an amazing opportunity to learn a new world of equipment and we have all walked away with so many new skills”
Rebecca Moon added: “I could not have been prouder of our young, creative Collyerians. They did us proud and participated professionally with extreme enthusiasm and pizazz! The day required the students to think on their feet, work with professionals and industry kit and they rose the challenge wonderfully”.
